Harvardwood DC Co-Presents: Murder and Mayhem in Old Town Alexandria: An Interview with Author John Wasowicz (with optional Cemetery Tour)

September 20, 2022 at 6:00pm - 7pm

September 20th Zoom interview (virtual) - 6–7pm EST / 3-4pm PST
September 25th cemetery tour (in-person in D.C.) - 10-11am EST

The September 20th Zoom interview and the September 25th cemetery tour are free to members of The Harvard Club of D.C.; Harvardwood; and the Tombs & Tomes and Color Me Read book clubs. 

It was a dark and stormy night (really); dangerous flooding means no one can leave the Gadsby’s Tavern Museum’s ‘Murder in the Museum’ fundraiser. When an egotistical local prosecutor stumbles across a real murder, he races the clock to find the killer before the flood waters recede.

Gadsby’s Corner is John Wasowicz’s fifth Old Town mystery novel. John will be interviewed by Dayna Wilkinson, Harvardwood’s Washington, DC chapter head.

On Sunday, September 25, John resumes the conversation at Congressional Cemetery with a walking tour of the cemetery grounds, including a visit to the crypt of John Gadsby, the original owner of the tavern.
