Lippman & Swierczynski in Philly

hushhushAuthors Laura Lippman (HUSH HUSH, WHAT THE DEAD KNOW, EVERY SECRET THING) and Duane Swierczynski (CANARY, EXPIRATION DATE, THE BLONDE) were in Philadelphia on Thursday night as part of the Free Library’s Author Events series.

Lippman and Swierczynski each read from their most recent novels, then answered questions from the audience.

Swierczynski bribed the audience with yellow Peeps to help generate questions (not needed, since the audience had plenty to ask these two talented writers), although — sadly — he didn’t toss the Peeps into the audience. Rather, they were daintily carried from the stage to the audience by library volunteers…

Regardless, it was a great event and a great conversation. You can listen to the entire thing on the Philadelphia Free Library’s podcast or using the media player below:
