Mary Daheim: The Seattle native plans to read and sign copies of her new book “Clam Wake — A Bed-and-Breakfast Mystery” at 7 p.m. Aug. 13 at University Bookstore, 15311 Main St., Mill Creek. With more than 50 mysteries in her popular Bed-and-Breakfast series, Daheim is back, this time sending innkeeper and amateur sleuth Judith McMonigle Flynn off on a housesitting-assignment-turned-murder-investigation in a beachside retirement community.
What will she and her loyal sidekick, cousin Renie, dig up along with their clams? Join a reading and signing with Daheim for chance to meet the prolific author and catch up on the latest happenings with the whip-smart and wily owner of the Hillside Manor.

Galena St., as part of the Mini Comic Con celebration. Both events are free. Stuller is the author of the 2010 book “Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology.”
