George Pelecanos in Conversation

The Friends of the Mt. Pleasant Library present an author talk with George Pelecanos, the critically-acclaimed DC-based novelist and television producer. Mr. Pelecanos will discuss his childhood in Ward One and the impact that has had on his writing. Many of his books take place in the Columbia Heights, Mt. Pleasant, Georgia Ave. and Dupont Circle neighborhoods and reflect actual locations and occurrences in the area over a range of decades.
