Lourey coming to library

Jess Lourey, Minnesota mystery author from St. Cloud, will present a free writing workshop at the Wadena City Library Sunday, March 4, from 2-4 p.m. Lourey's workshop will cover aspects of the writing and publishing industry. The workshop is free, but please call the library at (218) 631-2810 to reserve a spot.

Lourey is the author of the Lefty-nominated Murder-by-Month mysteries set in Battle Lake, including "May Day" and "June Bug," featuring amateur sleuth, Mira James. They have been popular books in many library systems. Her most recent book, "November Hunt," will be released in March 2012. Lourey has been teaching writing and sociology at the college level since 1998.

She spent her formative years in Paynesville, Minn., a small town not unlike the Murder-by-Month series' Battle Lake.
