Event description
An Evening of Crime at NEW YORK WRITERS WORKSHOP’S FIRST THURSDAYS READING SERIES AT RED ROOM

About this Event

The world may be filled with crime and corruption, but capturing it in a page-turning novel is best captured by award-winning authors Charles Salzberg, Puja Guha, Ed Lin, and Nish Amaranth. NEW YORK WRITERS WORKSHOP’S first Thursday’s reading series at Red Room presents an evening of CRIME hosted by Christina Chiu.

Ed Lin is a journalist by training and an all-around stand-up kinda guy. He’s the author of several books: Waylaid, his literary debut, and his Robert Chow crime series, set in 1970s Manhattan Chinatown: This Is a Bust, Snakes Can’t Run, and One Red Bastard. Lin, who is of Taiwanese and Chinese descent, is the first author to win three Asian American Literary Awards. Ghost Month was published in July 2014 by Soho Press.

Nish Amarnath is an American journalist, author and poet who grew up in different parts of India, Africa and Europe before shifting to London in her late teens. Her crime thriller, VICTIMS FOR SALE, released worldwide by HarperCollins in 2018, was nominated for the Bombay Film Festival Awards. Nish’s work has been workshopped at various forums, including those of ITV America, U.S. State Department affiliates, British Council outposts, the United Nations in New York and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry. Nish is a Contributing Editor at The Big Thrill Magazine and writes at New York’s Writer’s Edge, guiding fiction authors towards navigating their journey to publication.

Puja Guha is the author of The Ahriman Legacy series, including Publisher’s Weekly Booklife Prize for Fiction semi-finalist Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction. All of her books including international crime fiction thrillers Road to Redemption and Resurgence of the Hunt and literary family drama The Confluence have been recommended by the US Review of Books. Both Ahriman: The Spirit of Destruction and Resurgence of the Hunt are also Amazon bestsellers. Her story "Where are the Boats?" appeared in Down to the River anthology.

Charles Salzberg is author of the Shamus Award nominated Swann’s Last Song, Swann Dives In, Swann’s Lake of Despair, nominated for two Silver Falchions. Swann’s Way Out and Swann's Down. Devil in the Hole, was named one of the best crime novels of 2013 by Suspense magazine. Second Story Man won the 2018 Beverly Hills Book Award for Best Crime Novel. His work has appeared in Esquire, New York magazine, New York Times Book Review, and other periodicals. He is the author of over 20 nonfiction books, including Soupy Sez: My Zany Life and Times, with Soupy Sales. Charles has taught at Sarah Lawrence, the Writer's Voice and Hunter. He now teaches writing the New York Writers Workshop where he is a Founding Member. He is a member of the MWA-NY Board, and on the Board of PrisonWrites.
