Playbill reported yesterday that the International Mystery Writers' Festival will, indeed, be held this year in Owensboro (KY). At the conclusion of last year's festival, it was announced that the next one would be held in 2010. Now the organizers are saying the third annual festival will run August 11th through 16th this year at the RiverPark Center.
Center stage (if you will) will be four Agatha Christie classic mysteries in a radio-theater format. The works are Three Blind Mice, Yellow Iris, Butter in a Lordly Dish, and Personal Call.
This year's recipient of the First Lady of Mystery Award will be Sue Grafton. Grafton was most recently the co-Grand Master at this year's Edgar Awards Ceremony.
