Another BUSY year comes to an end!
A December 3 performance (with guest star Carl Brookins) at the year-end holiday party for the Twin Cities chapter of Sisters in Crime was the penultimate event of another BUSY year for Jeff - all capped off by the annual Norwegian Explorers banquet on Dec. 5. Highlight of the year was a triennial international Holmes conference at the University Minnesota in Minneapolis in August (photos above).
The year kicked off with a Sherlock Holmes birthday party at St. Paul's AZ Gallery in January, the annual Writers Festival in Rosemount in March, a presentation in Crookston, Minnesota during School Library Month in April, a visit to Jeff's hometown of Browns Valley for the Alumni Reunion in June, and a Writers Festival in Bloomington in November, followed a few days later by the South Dakota State Library's annual Performer's Showcases in Sioux Falls and Aberdeen. 2020 here we come!
