Eleven years ago, Driftwood teamed with the late Marcy Taylor to bring Northwest mystery writers to the Oregon coast. That first year was so successful that the series has continued every October, with only one break while the library was closed for its renovation in the Autumn and early Winter of 2009. For the 10th series, the library has asked some of its favorite mystery writers from past years to return, and the result is a very exciting lineup!
The series continues on October 17th with a visit from internationally bestselling writer Phillip Margolin. The author of 18 suspense novels and legal thrillers, beginning with Heartstone in 1978 and most recently this year’s Sleight of Hand, Margolin was a practicing attorney in Portland until 1996, when he took up writing full time.
All events in the Dark & Stormy Night series are free to the public and made possible by ongoing generous support from The Driftwood Library Foundation and from D’Sands Condominium Motel and The Anchor Inn.
