I've inadvertently discovered Laurie King's blog, aptly titled Laurie R. King -- Mutterings. In today's post, Madison, Thursday, she rightly mutters about the harried travel schedule of a highly-acclaimed author.
Ms. King writes that she spoke at an event with Les Klinger last night during which she made a rather important announcement:
"And I told them what I’ll announce here now, that Laurie King’s unwitting feud with international Sherlockianism (is that a word?) is officially over and made up. Yes, I have been asked to speak at the annual dinner of the Baker Street Irregulars in New York this January."Yes, Ms. King is the Distinguished Lecturer this year. She joins a who's who roster of speakers from past years, including Nicholas Meyer, Madeleine Stern, John Berendt, Leroy Panek, Owen Dudley Edwards and Gahan Wilson.
