It’s time to vote for the March tour. We decided to go with something a little bit lighter: Modern Genre Classics. While there are many genres represented in the classics, here are just four that we’d love to see on tour.
COMEDY: English writer P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) is best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and stories, and his prose has been praised by his contemporaries and modern writers.
MYSTERY: Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) wrote more than 80 detective novels, short stories and plays. According to Wikipedia, she’s the world’s best-selling author of any kind.
ROMANCE: Georgette Heyer (1902-1974) is best known for her historical romance novels, some of which are inspired by Jane Austen.
HISTORICAL FICTION: James Michener (1907-1997) wrote more than 40 historical novels, most of which are sweeping sagas covering many generations in a specific locale. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his 1948 novel Tales of the South Pacific.
