Best-selling mystery and horror author J.A. Jance introduced Joanna Brady to readers in Desert Heat in 1993. Her fictional Arizona sheriff, first voted into office in place of her murdered husband, has since been featured in 16 more books – among a total of more than 40 that Jance has written.

On the heels of the summer releases of the latest two entries in the Joanna Brady series, The Old Blue Line: A Joanna Brady Novella and Remains of Innocence, Jance appears at the Library’s Waldo Branch for a discussion of the series.

The Kansas City Opera Institute is settling into a second season of classes, workshops, and productions designed to prepare and showcase “the next generation of great performers.”

Those performers deliver a semi-staged production of Mozart’s Idomeneo, re di Creta — Italian for Idomeneo, King of Crete — a time-honored opera introduced more than 230 years earlier in Munich, Germany. Music historians suggest it might have been Mozart’s favorite work, a classic Greek myth that captures the growing tension of the social and political landscape of the late 18th century while exploring the value of a single human life.
