“an event of extreme importance” [SIGN]
There seems to be an explosion of Sherlock Holmes events of late. And the second outing of Holmes in the Heartland is an excellent entry in that horse race.
Rob Nunn, BSI ("Elementary") and Heather Hinson of the Parallel Case of St. Louis join us to talk about this pandemic-delayed event that is taking place July 28–30, 2023 at the Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.
The clever theme for this second entry in the Heartland series is "Arch Enemies," and features a wide array of Sherlockian speakers, vendors, and plenty of activities for all attendees. Listen to this funny and informative interview to hear what to expect and how to participate.
This episode's Canonical Couplet is an easy one! If you can't solve this, you shouldn't call yourself a Sherlockian. We've got something special from the IHOSE Vaults for our winner.
