Damned if I didn't let this get past me completely, not that it would've been convenient for me to drop down to my diploma mater George Mason University: http://fallforthebook.org/2015/08/13/festival-spotlight-mystery-writers-of-america/

On the heels of winning this year’s International Thriller Writers Award and Strand Critics Award for her novel The Fever, Megan Abbott will headline an evening of mystery (and maybe mayhem) on Tuesday, September 29, as part of Fall for the Book’s continuing partnership with the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of Mystery Writers of America.
The evening’s events begin at 6 p.m. in Grand Tier III of the Center for the Arts on George Mason’s Fairfax, VA, campus with a panel of local and regional mystery writers from the Mystery Writers of America. Panelists include:
Sherry Harris, author of the Sarah Winston Garage Sale Mysteries, including the Agatha Award-nominated Tagged for Death
Josh Pachter, a short story writer and translator whose career has spanned six decades and whose latest book is the story collection The Tree of Life
B.K. Stevens, an Agatha-nominated and Derringer Award-winning short story writer boasting two debut novels this year: Interpretation of Murder and the YA martial arts mystery Fighting Chance
And LynDee Walker, author of the Headlines in High Heels mystery series, including the Agatha-nominated Front Page Fatality and most recently the fourth book in the series, Devil in the Deadline
Art Taylor, an Agatha, Macavity, and Derringer Award-winning short story writer and author of On the Road with Del & Louise: A Novel in Stories, will moderate the discussion.
