Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes two international best-selling and beloved authors ANNE HILLERMAN AND WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER in conversation.
ABOUT ANNE: Best-selling mystery writer Anne Hillerman has been named the 2019 recipient of the Frank Waters Award by the Friends of the Pikes Peak Library District. The award is given annually for literary excellence.
Hillerman, daughter of the late Southwest mystery writer Tony Hillerman, has written books on the food and gardens of Santa Fe, as well as travel guides to her city. She also continued the popular New Mexico mystery series popularized by her father. Tony Hillerman was a Frank Waters honoree in 1998. Anne Hillerman’s fifth Southwest mystery, “Tale Teller,” was released April 9.
ABOUT KENT: Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota. His protagonist is Cork O’Connor, the former sheriff of Tamarack County and a man of mixed heritage—part Irish and part Ojibwe. His work has received a number of awards, including the Minnesota Book Award, the Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, the Dilys Award, and the Friends of American Writers Prize. His last nine novels were all New York Times bestsellers.
Ordinary Grace, his stand-alone novel published in 2013, received the Edgar Award, given by the Mystery Writers of America in recognition for the best novel published in that year. The companion novel, This Tender Land, is scheduled for publication in September 2019.
