The Santa Monica Public Library celebrates Women’s History Month with “A Tale of Two Cities: Mysteries Set in Paris and New York,” a discussion with writers Cara Black and Rhys Bowen, on Sunday, March 22, at 2 p.m. in the Main Library’s MLK, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

Bestselling authors Cara Black and Rhys Bowen take participants on a journey into two of the world’s most amazing cities: Paris and New York. They discuss their latest novels, their inspirations, and their writing process.

“Murder on the Champ de Mars” is the 15th book in Cara Black’s Aim√©e Leduc Investigation series, set in contemporary Paris. “The Edge of Dreams” is the 13th book in Rhys Bowen’s Molly Murphy series, set in turn of the century New York. Both series feature a female detective and touch on the criminal justice system, forensics, culture, and social issues.

A book sale and signing, courtesy of Mystery Ink Bookstore, follows the program.
