October 24, at 10:00 am, 3845 North Swan Street – “Light Literature Needn’t be Flighty: Writing ‘Death in a Desert Garden’”

“Bea Rivers’ euphoria over her new job at Shandley Gardens is shattered by the death of the Gardens’ founder, Liz Shandley. When the police determine that she was murdered, Bea is drawn into the investigation, while trying desperately to maintain the life of a committed single parent dating a struggling writer. Every one of the members of the small staff and board are murder suspects.  Through the sizzling and beautiful days of a Sonoran Desert summer, someone keeps dropping odd botanical clues. As Bea’s family’s safety is threatened, she discovers just how tangled the relationships at the Gardens really are.”

Marty Eberhardt’s debut novel is a murder mystery set in a botanical garden. Although traditional murder mysteries tend to be light literature, Eberhardt will discuss how she wove some weighty issues, such as water conservation, climate change, and racism among others, into the whodunnit format.

“We humans must all nourish ourselves with what gives us joy, so that we have the strength to do the work of caring for each other and the planet. Much of my joy comes from immersion in the natural world. I try to communicate that in everything I write,” Eberhardt said.

She will read excerpts from her book and have copies available for sale.
