Join us in a virtual conversation with Lee Goldberg and celebrate the release of "Calico" which comes out November 7th!

Lee not only writes wonderful mysteries, he's been the writer and producer of one of our favorite TV shows, "Monk", so you know that this will be a fascinating, quirky, and fun discussion.

About Calico:

There’s a saying in Barstow, California, a decaying city in the scorching Mojave desert . . . The Interstate here only goes in one direction: Away. But it’s the only place where ex-LAPD detective Beth McDade, after a staggering fall from grace, could get another badge . . . and a shot at redemption. 

Over a century ago, and just a few miles further into the bleak landscape, a desperate stranger ended up in Calico, a struggling mining town, also hoping for a second chance. His fate, all those years ago, and hers today are linked when Beth investigates an old skeleton dug up in a shallow, sandy grave . . . and also tries to identity a vagrant run-over by a distracted motorhome driver during a lightning storm. Every disturbing clue she finds, every shocking discovery she makes, force Beth to confront her own troubled past...and a past that’s not her own...until it all smashes together in a revelation that could change the world.

About Lee Goldberg:

Lee Goldberg is a two-time Edgar Award and two-time Shamus Award nominee and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of nearly 40 novels, including Lost Hills, True Fiction, fifteen Monk mysteries, and the first five “Fox & O’Hare” books, co-written with Janet Evanovich. He’s also written and/or produced many TV shows, including Diagnosis Murder, SeaQuest, and Monk, and co-created the Hallmark movie series Mystery 101. As an international television consultant, he has advised networks and studios in Canada, France, Germany, Spain, China, Sweden, and the Netherlands on the creation, writing, and production of episodic television series.

He lives with his family in Calabasas, California, where flames forced his family to evacuate during the recent Southern California wildfires.

This program is in collaboration with Ashland Public Library.
