Peggy Ehrhart Speaks on Women Sleuths


On June 11, Peggy Ehrhart gave her presentation “Tough Gals: The Female Sleuth in Mystery Fiction” at Randolph Free Public Library in Randolph, NJ. The talk deals with the change from women as amateur sleuths to women as professional sleuths in mystery fiction, paralleling the change in women’s career opportunities as feminism advanced. Peggy writes the Knit & Nibble mystery series for Kensington Publishing. (Her sleuth is actually an amateur!)
