The Elm City is the setting in these mystery novels

Annie Seymour is back!

WOODBRIDGE - The award-winning author of the Annie Seymour mystery series, set in New Haven, will be the featured Purves Lecturer at the Woodbridge Town Library at 7 p.m. Oct. 27.

Titles in the series by author Karen E. Olson include Sacred Cows, Secondhand Smoke, Dead of the Day, and the latest, Shot Girl, which will be released on Nov. 4. Copies of Shot Girl will be available for purchase at the lecture, before they hit bookstores, organizers said.

Olson, shown, a Connecticut native, worked for 20 years as a newspaper journalist, including at the New Haven Register. She now lives in the suburbs of New Haven with her husband and daughter, and devotes more time to her fiction writing.

She is working on a new mystery series featuring a tattoo shop owner in Las Vegas. The first in that series, The Missing Ink, will be released in July 2009.

The annual Purves Lecture is sponsored by the Friends of the Woodbridge Library. This event is free and open to the public, with no registration necessary.

For more information call (203) 389-3466.
