Friends of the Houston Cole Library
To Host Discussion of
Mysteries of Anne George

JACKSONVILLE -- January 24, 2002 -- Pam Kingsbury, independent scholar and member of the Alabama Humanities Foundation's Speaker in the House program, presents, "Books to Die for: The Mystery of Anne George," on Feb. 21 at 2:00 PM at the Houston Cole Library.

Using novels by this Alabama author, Kingsbury discusses how the mystery genre in fiction is often looked down on by scholars and academics, but is still enormously popular. This program is part of the 2001-2003 AHF Speaker in the House program.

Kingsbury received her Master's degree in Creative Writing and Contemporary American and World Literature from the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque. She has served as one of the American editors of Stand Magazine and as a movie critic and book reviewer for the Albuquerque Tribune/Journal.

The Alabama Humanities Foundation (AHF) is a non-profit organization, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (of which the AHF is the state affiliate), as well as by corporate and individual donors. The Foundation is dedicated to the promotion and celebration of the humanities throughout the state of Alabama and, to that end, conducts its own state-wide programs and awards grants on a competitive basis to non-profit organizations for humanities projects.
