Debra Komar: Black River Road.

Debra Komar has had a distinguished career as a forensic anthropologist, and has worked all over the world employing her skills to solve old mysteries. Her latest book is Black River Road In 1869, in the woods just outside of the bustling port city of Saint John, a group of teen- aged berry pickers discovered several badly decomposed bodies. The authorities suspect- ed foul play, but the identities of the victims were as mysterious as that of the perpetrator. From the twists and turns of a coroner’s inquest, an unlikely suspect emerged to stand trial for murder: John Munroe, a renowned architect, well-heeled family man, and pillar of the community.

Tyler Ellis

Join author Tim Falconer and singer-songwriter Tyler Ellis as they explore the culture, the science, the joy, and the gut-wrenching fear of raising your voice in song. Tim and Tyler both love music and they both love to sing. Tyler’s pretty good; Tim is pretty darn awful and he knows it. We all want to sing, but many of us aren’t confident in our ability to do it well. So we sing in the car, and in the shower, but not in public - and wonder what we’re missing out on. This fascinating presentation covers the importance of singing together and why music means so much to us.
