Free Workshop: Taking the Mystery Out of Writing Mysteries with Dennis Palumbo

Date: Friday, March 23, 2018, 12:30pm – 2:00pm

Location: Center for Creativity located in The University Store on Fifth

Join Pitt alumnus and mystery novelist Dennis Palumbo for mystery-writing workshop and book signing!

Whether you’re interested in writing a psychological thriller, police procedural or humorous cozy, practicing psychotherapist and crime novelist Dennis Palumbo explores ways to craft a satisfying mystery. In this free workshop, he’ll explore such topics as the importance of a strong, relatable protagonist; how to build a compelling, credible “world” in which the story takes place; and how to mine your own thoughts, feelings and experiences to enrich the inner lives of your characters.

Formerly a Hollywood screenwriter (My Favorite Year; Welcome Back, Kotter), Dennis Palumbo is now a licensed psychotherapist and author. His mystery fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, The Strand and elsewhere, and is collected in From Crime to Crime (Tallfellow Press). His acclaimed series of crime novels (Mirror Image, Fever Dream, Night Terrors, Phantom Limb, and the latest, Head Wounds) feature psychologist Daniel Rinaldi, a trauma expert who consults with the Pittsburgh Police. All are from Poisoned Pen Press.

Mental Wellness Book Club to Host Open House, Opportunity to Purchase Titles at Discount

The Mental Wellness Task Force of the University Senate's Benefits and Welfare committee and LifeSolutions will host an open house on Tuesday, March 6, from noon to 2 p.m. at the University Store on Fifth. All of this season's book club titles will be available for purchase at a discount and Tom Koloc, senior account manager at LifeSolutions, will be on-site to talk with attendees who have questions or comments about mental wellness.

"Secrets to Winning at Office Politics” (a business/self-help read about communication techniques) and “For One More Day” (a novel about grief) are the two titles for which the most people have asked to be waitlisted, said Linda Tashbook, chair of the Senate Benefits and Welfare committee. "We know that a lot of people want to talk about these topics and titles and we hope that they will give us another chance to talk with them by coming to this open house."

For more information about the open house or the book club, contact Linda Tashbook at [email protected] or 412-648-1303.
