Gunther-Gram May 2011

The Official Archer Mayor Newsletter

A little upcoming razzle-dazzle!!



June 9, on Long Island, I’ll be at Brookhaven National Laboratory, at 7 pm.

June 11, still in that neighborhood, I’ll be at Border’s in Stony Brook NY, at 1 pm.

Here’s a snippet of their press release:

“During a free and open-to-the-public event, Archer will detail how, in RED HERRING, Joe Gunther finds himself using cutting-edge forensics tools at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory to investigate a brutal series of murders.

At 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, in Brookhaven’s Berkner Hall, he will read excerpts from the book, which centers around the discovery of single drops of blood found at the scene of seemingly unrelated death scenes. He also will explain why, when conventional forensics lead the Vermont detectives to a dead end, they take their evidence to Brookhaven’s National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) for closer scrutiny.”

Directions: The Laboratory is located on William Floyd Parkway (County Road 46), one-and-a-half miles north of Exit 68 of the Long Island Expressway. All visitors age 16 and older must bring a photo ID.

A second presentation will be offered at Borders in Stony Brook, NY (2130 Nesconset Highway) on Saturday, June 11, at 1 p.m. For more information, go to their web site, or call (631) 979-0500


July 30th, I’ll be one of the speakers at the 3rd annual Bookstock event, in Woodstock VT, speaking at noon. Check out their web site for developing details.


August 26th, Friday evening, at Waitsfield Vermont’s Festival of the Arts,

at 7 pm, I’ll be discussing:

“Not CSI”


Forensics – Truth and Fiction


Absurd, Improbable Forensics on TV and in films.

  At the West Hill Inn, Warren, VT.

The next day, August 27th, Saturday, at 2 pm, I’ll run a workshop for writers and readers — “How Archer does what he does — site and plot development, characters.”

 To be followed that same night with:

“An informal evening with Archer Mayor”

7 to 9pm at the Inn

Save the date and come to Waitsfield.

And HEY! I’m on Facebook, too. Check me out!
