Jewel of the Thames author Angela Misri will be making three appearances in Princeton this week. She will be at Marketfair Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, August 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. From 6 to 7 p.m. that day she will be reading and signing at Chocolate Lovers. On August 15 from 6 to 7:30 she will be doing the same at Infini-T Café.
On August 16 the author will take time out from her book tour to appear as one of the panelists at GRIDLock DC in Alexandria, Virginia, a fan-based convention that focuses on all things Sherlock, including a discussion session with Ms. Misri at 3 p.m. Fans will get the chance to ask her anything they want to know about Jewel of the Thames, writing a mystery novel and, of course, paying homage to Sherlock Holmes.
Jewel of the Thames, book one in the Portia Adams Adventure Series, focuses on the granddaughter of Dr. Watson and was published March 2014 by Fierce Ink Press. The second book in the series, Thrice Burned, will be available in Canada in March, 2015.
According to CM Magazine, “Misri has made a clever contribution to Sherlock Holmes spin-off literature. Jewel of the Thames will introduce younger readers to the Holmes world while also appealing to seasoned Sherlock fans.”
