Nancy Perkins returns to the Cushing Public Library with Murder Most Foul -
Recent Mystery Writers of the U.K., an update to her earlier introduction of
the British mystery novel, one of the world's most popular genres.  


With an academic background in British History, Literature and Art History,
Nancy Perkins has seen her passion for and study of mysteries evolve into
courses and presentations over the past few years at the Senior College at
Belfast, where she serves as President, and elsewhere.  This program will
introduce a diverse group represented in the collection of the Cushing
Public Library, including Ann Cleeves, Elly Griffiths, Anthony Horowitz,
S.J. Parris, Ian Rankin and C.J. Sansom - each with a distinctive voice as
heir to the Golden Age writers discussed in her first presentation last year


Nancy is a Virginia native and graduate of Westhampton College of the
University of Richmond, where she was taught Art History by the late Pat
Farmer of Cushing, a long-time friend.  Nancy has been a nonprofit
fundraiser and, in addition to her role at the Senior College, she currently
serves on the Board of Directors of Waterfall Arts.


Thanks -
