KRL Foundation hosting event with author J.A. Jance

BREMERTON — National best-selling mystery author J.A. Jance will be featured in an upcoming event hosted by the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.

Jance, whose mysteries include the series featuring Seattle detective J.P. Beaumont and Arizona Sheriff Joanna Brady, will appear at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at Rice Fergus Miller Architecture and Planning.

According to Jeff Brody, director of community relations for KRL, Jance will appear as part of the KRL Foundation’s Author! Author! program series, in which local authors facilitate a conversation with visiting authors. Brody said the programs create an intimate atmosphere in which the audience can “eavesdrop” on a conversation between the two authors, which generally touches on the specific work of the authors as well as the craft of writing and the publishing industry.

The host author for this event is Seattle mystery writer Bernadette Pajer, who has penned the Professor Bradshaw mysteries and is a member of the Seattle 7 Writers group.

In addition to the conversation, guests are treated with wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Books by the authors featured are for sale at the events, which end with a book signing opportunity.

General seating tickets are $50 and available at All proceeds benefit the Kitsap Regional Library.
