MMC Rules in Favor of Turow

Scott Turow, the author of such best-selling novels as Presumed Innocent (1987), Reversible Errors (2002) and Testimony (2017), has received the annual Paretsky Award for his work. That commendation was presented to him during the third annual Murder and Mayhem in Chicago convention, held this last Saturday. The Paretsky Award, named after Sara Paretsky, the creator of Windy City private detective V.I. Warshawski, “honors mysteries set in the Midwest.”

According to a press release, this year’s one-day Murder and Mayhem in Chicago—chaired by book publicist Dana Kaye and award-winning author Lori Rader-Day—featured “over 240 crime-fiction authors, publishing pros, librarians, booksellers, and readers … plus interviews with [keynote speakers] Turow and international bestselling author Sophie Hannah. Kaye and Rader-Day are already planning next year’s event, which will take place in March of 2020 and will feature New York Times bestselling author, William Kent Krueger.”
