It’s no mystery that Larkin Square will be the place to be Thursday, when Buffalo-based writers Sandra Block, Barbara Early and Alice Loweecey will discuss the art of suspense writing. The event is part of the new “Third Thursday in Larkinville,” a new informal monthly celebration in Larkinville with tastings at Flying Bison Brewery and the Hydraulic Hearth Restaurant & Brewery.
Sandra Block, a practicing neurologist in Buffalo, is the author of the new book “The Girl without a Name,” featuring the character Zoe Goldman, who was introduced in Block’s debut novel, “Little Black Lies.”
Barbara Early is a Buffalo native who writes the Bridal Bouquet Shop Mysteries under the name Beverly Allen. The books include “Bloom and Doom,” “For Whom the Bluebell Tolls” and “Floral Depravity.”
Alice Loweecey is a former nun whose books include “Force of Habit,” “Veiled Threat” and “Back in the Habit.” Her latest books, which feature an ex-nun who works as a private investigator, are “Nun Too Soon” and “Second to Nun.”
“While the three writers have different styles, they all incorporate a dose of fun and suspense into their books,” said Leslie Zemsky, Larkin Square’s director of fun.
The event, at Larkin Square, 745 Seneca St., will run from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Thursday, and will be followed by a book signing. Beer, wine and light fare will be sold at the Filling Station.
