Sara Paretsky @ Women and Children First

Also this Thursday, local mystery author Sara Paretsky will be appearing at Women and Children First. Her new novel, Breakdown, is the 15th novel following V. I. Warshawski, female private investigator. The Chicago Sun-Times says "Warshawski presents an irresistible combination - a cranky, vulnerable woman with
a messy life, but a superhuman willingness to put herself in harm's way for the sake of
justice." The event marks the 30th anniversary of the series. "Champagne, of course, and other refreshments will be served." Women and Children First, 5233 N. Clark, Thursday, January 12 at 7:30pm.
