Mysteryscape Chamber Theatre Salutes Mystery Grand Dame Agatha Christie

Mysteryscape Chamber Theatre brings you Miss Jane Marple in Agatha Christie's The Affair at the Bungalow, June 18, 7 pm at Mysteryscape

Beware of harmless old ladies with knitting needles. They have sharp, pointy minds that unravel complex plots without dropping a stitch. A beautiful actress shares a fascinating story about theft, betrayal and murder, challenging her rapt audience to solve the mystery. Stumped, the group turns to Jane who admits even she hasn't a clue... or does she?  

Sisters in Crime Speaker Award-Winning Author Barbara Stuber

Local Young Adult Author Barbara Stuber discusses Girl in Reverse, now in paperback, Saturday, June 6, 11 am at Mysteryscape
 
Our speaker is award-winning writer Barbara Stuber, author of Girl in Reverse. Set in Kansas City during the Korean War, Girl in Reverse tells the story of Lily Firestone, a Chinese-American girl, whose mother put her up for adoption, then disappeared without a trace. Or so Lily was told. With the Korean War raging and fear of "commies" everywhere, Lily's Asian heritage makes her a target of racism in high school. When her little brother finds a box of broken antiques hidden in the attic, Lily matches these clues to Chinese artifacts exhibited at the nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art hoping to unravel her past.
 
Barbara Stuber is a docent at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Her love of art inspired Girl in Reverse, which earned a starred review from the School Library Journal and a place on The Kansas City Star's and  NPR's list of Best Books of 2014. Barbara's previous young adult title, Crossing the Tracks, was a William C. Morris finalist. Both titles are available in paperback at Mysteryscape. Reserve one or both ahead of the event. Barbara will be available to sign copies.
