Award-winning mystery author Julia Spencer-Fleming will speak and do a book signing from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday in the parish hall of Trinity Episcopal Church, 1011 Vt.
Spencer-Fleming will sign copies of her latest crime mystery, "A Fountain Filled with Blood" (hardcover, $24.95) and her first novel, "In the Bleak Midwinter" (paperback, $6.99), both published by St. Martin's Press.
Both mysteries feature Clare Fergusson, a newly ordained, female Episcopalian priest, as the protagonist and crime solver.
This literary event is co-sponsored by The Raven Book Store, 6 E. Seventh St., and Trinity Episcopal.
The talk and book signing are open to the community. There is no charge to attend. The Raven has copies of both of Spencer-Fleming's books in stock.
