This event will be a conversation with Laura Lippman and David Simon, who met and married as crime reporters for the Baltimore Sun.
Laura Lippman is a New York Times bestselling novelist who has won more than 20 awards for her detective fiction—and been nominated for thirty more, including the Anthony, the Agatha, the Shamus, and the Nero Wolfe. Since her debut in 1997, she has published over 20 works, including a novella, a collection of short stories, and the wildly popular detective series about “accidental PI” Tess Monaghan.
David Simon is an author, screenwriter, and producer. From 1983 to 1995, he was a crime reporter with the Baltimore Sun, and during that time, he learned to draw from his insights as an investigative journalist to craft rich narratives that confront some of the most daunting challenges facing America’s urban centers. Simon has authored a wide range of nonfiction works, both in journalism and book-length form, but he is best known for his contributions to television.
