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.
