Nevada Barr fans have been anxiously awaiting the 14th installment of the Anna Pigeon series of mysteries and Winter Study does not disappoint. Set on Isle Royal in Lake Superior, where temperatures are around zero 24 hours a day, Winter Study follows Pigeon as she joins a wolf study team. As if being stuck in an icy camp out in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of brainiac, self-absorbed scientists isn’t bad enough, Pigeon has to contend with a couple of Homeland Security bureaucrats and giant wolf right off Dr. Moreau’s island.
Catch Nevada Barr as she reads from Winter Study at 6:30 p.m. today. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-524-8597 or visit www.murderbooks.com. Free. – Olivia Flores Alvarez
