One Book One Community: “Arthur and Sherlock” by local author Michael Sims, Monday, Aug. 28, 6:30 p.m.

Greensburg’s own internationally acclaimed Michael Sims tells the story of how Arthur Conan Doyle created the most famous detective of all time. “With all the brilliance of Sherlock himself … Sim’s magnificent work of scholarship isn’t a birth-to-death biography of Conan Doyle but a more specific investigation … which reads something like a superhero origin story … Sims, the author of books on E.B. White and Henry Thoreau, is himself an ingenious investigator. Among his most intriguing explorations in his teasing out of not just Conan Doyle’s personal history but the history of the detective story itself.” – New York Times Book Review.  The library will loan copies of the book.
