Iconic Fiction Writer Sue Grafton To Be Celebrated With Weekend Fundraiser For Santa Barbara Library
The work of an author who used the Santa Barbara area as a basis for her best-selling detective novels is going to celebrated this weekend, in a unique fundraising event.
Sue Grafton’s series of books began with “A is For Alibi,” which was published in the early 1980’s and she made it all the way to “Y” before she died in 2017.
The books are set in the fictional town of Santa Teresa, which is a fictionalized version of Santa Barbara. On Sunday, the non-profit group “Friends of the Santa Barbara Library” is holding a Grafton related fundraiser for the library.
The afternoon event features a panel with some of Grafton’s friends, a trolley tour of some of the places featured in the books, and a reception. There’s information on the event at: www.friends-sblibrary.org
