Jones Point author John Adam Wasowicz (left) and Hampden-Sidney professor Shirley Kagan say hello from the Edgar Allen Poe Birthday Bash at the Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia. Wasowicz and Kagan were both featured guests of the bash. Wasowicz hosted a “Mo and Poe” talk, which celebrated both the release of his latest Elmo Katz novel and the fictional detective who launched the American detective fiction genre, Poe’s C. Auguste Dupin. A big thanks to all who came out and joined the fun!
John Adam Wasowicz will appear at the Poe Birthday Bash at the Edgar Allen Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia on January 18th. John will be giving a “Mo ‘n’ Poe” book talk on Mo Katz, the featured sleuthing attorney in Jones Point, and Edgar Allen Poe, the grandfather of the American detective story.
