Alaska novelist speaks Thursday night in Anchorage.

JIM LAVRAKAS — Anchorage Daily News

 Former State Writer Laureate John Straley will read from his latest novel, “Cold Storage, Alaska” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Great Harvest Bread Company, 570 E. Benson Blvd.

The long-time criminal defense investigator from Sitka will speak on “Lessons from a Life of Crime” during the event, divulging trade secrets about what it takes to be both a mystery writer and real-life sleuth.

“Cold Storage,” which came out Feb. 4, is not a standard whodunnit, but a humorous — or at least happy — look at a quirky Southeast hamlet.
