Michael Connelly, Crime Novelist   

This class has just been changed to a Zoom class due to the potential snow storm. 
If you have any questions, please contact the Elderwise Office. Thank you.

Michael Connelly is one of America’s most popular and critically acclaimed crime writers. He is best known for a long-running series featuring LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch, which became a popular Netflix show. He also created several additional series featuring a criminal defense attorney (Mickey Haller, known as the Lincoln Lawyer), an FBI profiler (Terry McCaleb), a newspaper reporter (Jack McEvoy), and an LAPD policewoman (Renée Ballard) who works the night shift. As Connelly began incorporating all his characters into the Bosch metaverse, he expanded the notion of what a crime series is capable of doing. Join us as presenter David Geherin shares a close look at Connelly’s career and identifies the reasons for his success. Class participants are encouraged to read at least one of Connelly’s 36 novels.

David Geherin is Professor Emeritus of English at Eastern Michigan University. He is the author of ten books on crime and mystery fiction, two of which were finalists for the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Allan Poe Award. David’s latest book is The Crime World of Michael Connelly (2022).
