Did Sherlock Holmes travel to Minnesota in 1894 in order to track a murderous arsonist? Larry Millett, author of the "Sherlock Holmes in Minnesota" series of mystery novels, will answer this and many other compelling questions in a lecture at the University of St. Thomas on December 12, 7:00 p.m. Millett will discuss how his love of history and Victorian literature led him to write the first novel in the six-volume series, Sherlock Holmes and the Red Demon (1996). In addition, he will detail the processes of research, writing, and editing that are involved in book publication. In the hour preceding Millett's lecture, undergraduate English majors will give poster presentations based on their own scholarly explorations of the Victorian mystery genre. After the poster presentations at 6:00 p.m. and Millett's lecture at 7:00 p.m., there will be a Victorian-themed reception and book signing. All events will be held in Woulfe Alumni Hall, Anderson Student Center. The event is free, but registration is requested, either by clicking on the box above or by sending an email to email@example.com.
