Special Collections holds its fourth annual Women Writing Mystery Lecture Series program at the 2014 Tucson Festival of Books featuring Jacqueline Winspear, author of the award-winning ‘Maisie Dobbs’ series of books which explore the aftermath of World War I.

This exciting lecture program, held each year at the Tucson Festival of Books, highlights the Women Mystery Writers Collection housed in Special Collections. The collection has a primary emphasis on Southwestern women mystery authors and includes mystery novels published from the 1950s to present written by female authors who primarily portray female protagonists.

Also collected are papers and manuscripts of Southwestern women mystery authors, including the papers of bestselling author J.A. Jance. With more than 1,400 volumes, the collection serves an interdisciplinary audience conducting research in the areas of literature, creative writing, cultural studies, and women’s studies.
