What do two nurses and a baglady have in common? CRIME. Christina Manolescu, Donna Yates-Adelman and NAT Grant are celebrating National Crime Writing Week in their own special way. All three are Montreal authors who have something to say, but where’s the criminal link? Both Yates-Adelman and Grant are nurses. Yates-Adelman has written a non-fiction book, Yes Sister, about nursing, Grant is author of the spy thriller Race Series and Baglady author, Manolescu has just launched her first adult fiction novel. Is it a crime to be a female author? No way. The connection is murder in Baglady, Grant’s Race Series fuses terrorist bedlam with a high body count, and Yate-Adelman thinks it’s a crime what’s happened to the nursing profession. The threesome will be holding up the crowd at Chapters West Island, Montreal on Saturday, June 3 from 1-3 p.m. It would be a crime to miss it.
