Paying homage to the superstitious hype of Friday the 13th, the LBCC Foundation and Library and Learning Resources Associates are hosting a murder mystery event in P104 at the LAC on Friday, Sept. 13.

The Foundation and Library and Learning Resources Associates invite authors to campus to raise funds for the Library. Proceeds from ticket sales go toward buying new books for the Library, Executive Director of the Foundation Ginny Baxter said. Mystery and thriller authors Darrell James and Tammy Kaehler will be reading from and signing copies of their newest novels, “Sonora Crossing” and “Braking Points.” Copies of both novels will be available for purchase during the book signing.

The authors “really seem to enjoy coming to a college campus,” Baxter said. Admission is $15 and may be reserved by calling or emailing Baxter at (562) 938-4634 or, buying at the door or purchased online at Students with a current LBCC ID get in free.
