We Play at Maya's Big Book Event!
The debut event for Maya's first detective novel, THE ANTIQUITIES HUNTER, will be held at the Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology on October 20th. The event will begin at 1:00 PM in the conference room in Kroeber Hall and will feature a bit of acoustic music performed by us, Maya reading a selection from the book, a Q&A session (no spoilers1) and, of course, Maya will sign books you buy or bring.
There will also be special treats and tchotchkesfor anyone who buys a book.
The plot of this first Gina Miyoko novel follows a petite but mighty detective into the wilds of Chiapas where she encounters the relics of a long-dead Mayan king, Shield Jaguar II. In an amazing case of synchronous serendipity, the exhibit the Hearst is hosting during the book release event is entitled Face to Face: Looking at Objects that Look Back.
