Award winning mystery writer Sara Paretsky is coming to Springfield. She’ll speak at a fundraiser for the Simmons Cancer Institute on April 12th.
What sets Paretsky apart was her ability to create a female investigator with street smarts at a time when few existed in fiction. WUIS’ Sean Crawford had a chance to speak with her about that character and writing in general.
Paretsky grew up in Kansas but maneuvered her way to Chicago where she lives today.
Sara Paretsky will speak April 12th in Springfield at the 4th Annual Women’s Power Lunch Against Cancer. It benefits the Simmons Cancer Institute at the SIU School of Medicine.
