Join us for a captivating evening featuring award-winning writer, researcher, and editor Keith Roysdon, alongside esteemed author and former journalist Jill Blocker. Together, they will engage in a compelling discussion about their latest works and offer insights into their unique perspectives.

Keith Roysdon, a lifelong Indiana resident now residing in Tennessee, will discuss the latest book he co-authored with Douglas Walker, Cold Case Muncie. The book marks the duo's fourth collaboration on crime and justice in Muncie and Delaware County. It delves into the chilling narratives of unsolved murders in the area, providing a gripping exploration of the mysteries that haunt the community. Roysdon will also talk about writing fiction, including recently published short stories.

Joining Roysdon is Ball State alum Jill Blocker, author of What Was Beautiful and Good. Her novel transports readers to the tumultuous era of the First World War, where a young singer's 'joie de vivre' is disrupted by the chaos of conflict. Blocker's narrative explores themes of freedom and resilience, inspired by real-life events that sparked an international art movement. Originally from the U.S., Blocker currently lives in Zurich, Switzerland.
