Wednesday September 19, 2012
Free to Members of CFA
As part of the Center's Crime Fiction Academy, acclaimed author, Lawrence Block, gave practical writing tips to budding crime authors in this talk.
Lawrence Block has been writing award-winning mystery and suspense fiction for half a century. His most recent novels are A Drop of the Hard Stuff, featuring Matthew Scudder, and Getting Off, starring a very naughty young woman. Several of his books have been filmed, although not terribly well. He's well known for his books for writers, including the classic Telling Lies for Fun & Profit, and The Liar's Bible. In addition to prose works, he has written episodic television (Tilt!) and the Wong Kar-wai film, My Blueberry Nights. He is a modest and humble fellow, although you would never guess as much from this biographical note.
