Mysteries:  Whodunit?

Saturday, November 7, 9:00 am – 2:30 pm, Lewis House

Join ASPEC for our 4th Annual Literary Symposium and take a walk through the history of whodunits where we explore some of the more famous authors, memorable detectives and dastardly deeds that made us fall in love with murder.  We'll meet Auguste Dupin, Jane Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys and others, including a specially invited mystery author. The program runs from 9:00am until 2:30pm, including snacks and lunch.  Please call 727-864-8834 or email aspecrsvp@eckerd.edu to register.  Free and open to the public.
