One of the highlights of the Writers’ Police Academy was the banquet where the guest speaker was Karin Slaughter. I’ve read many of Karin’s books which are gritty crime fiction. Her speech was hilarious as she based it on her family and growing up in the South. If I didn’t enjoy her books so much, I’d suggest she had a future as a comedian. I’d go to see her again in a heartbeat. I’ve included pictures of her speaking, signing books right after I had mine signed, and the books I purchased. I couldn’t put Cop Town down when I returned home and finished it in short order.
