Disaster at the Vendome Theater: A Conversation with ML Longworth (in English)

October 4, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

Tuesday, October 4, 2022
11am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET
Alliance Française of Pasadena
In English

Join us for a conversation with author M. L. Longworth about her new book, Disaster at the Vendome Theater, the tenth and latest installment in her well-reviewed Verlaque-Bonnet mystery series which takes place in and around Aix-en Provence.  Kirkus Review called the mysteries “Extreme puzzlement in a lush setting” and Slate wrote, “Full of gourmet meals, silky wines, and sumptuous homes, these cozy mysteries transport you to the south of France . . . Perfect for the gourmands or Francophiles in your life.”

M.L. Longworth’s books are now the basis of a new television series called “Murder in Provence” which is available on BritBox, a streaming service of the BBC and ITV, which can be found at www.britbox.com/us/ or on Amazon Prime Video.

Ms. Longworth will join us from Aix-en-Provence where she has lived since 1997.  She began her professional writing career with a series of articles about the art and architecture of Provence.  She transitioned to writing fiction so she could give readers a view of daily life in Provence while exploring wine and food in the context of intricate mysteries.  Her first book in the Verlaque-Bonnet series was published in 2011.  She will talk about her books and her life as a writer in Provence.
