Here at CrimeHQ, we're always striving to give you the lowdown on all of the upcoming mystery conventions, but sometimes a few fall through the cracks. Luckily, we have the support of great readers like Carol Tedesco, who commented on our conventions' post and alerted us that Mystery Writers Key West Fest had fallen off our radar. That would have been a most unacceptable crime!
Mystery Writers Key West Fest will run August 14-16 in Key West, Florida, and this year's headliner will be Jeffrey Deaver! Through a series of panels, presentations, and social events, mystery writers and true-crime experts will reveal their sleuthing savvy and who-dunnit know-how, letting crime fans learn how to craft their own mischievous tales of crime, murder, and mystery. Other authors set to appear include James O. Born, Chris Kuzneski, Heather Graham, Libby Fischer Hellman, Laurence O'Bryan, Sandra Balzo, Carolina Garcia-Aguilera, and many others.
