About

Step into the world of theatre and intrigue with Kate Hilton and Elizabeth Renzetti as they bring the fictional town of Port Ellis to life in their latest book, Bury the Lead. While the sweet and cosy cottage town is best known for its butter tarts, something scandalous is going on as the lead actor in the town’s play ends up dead on stage. Reporter Cat Conway tackles the story for the local paper, but the police think she’s a suspect and the murderer wants to kill the story—and her too—so it gets complicated. Join us for a morning of mystery and laughter, where butter tarts and other sweets will be served alongside coffee and tea as the authors dive into the secrets behind this thrilling whodunit!

Moderator: Wendy O’Brien

Generously supported by Harriet Lewis and Eldon Bennett & Nalini and Tim Stewart.

A big-city journalist joins the staff of a small-town paper in cottage country and finds a community full of secrets … and murder. Cat Conway has recently returned to Port Ellis to work as a reporter at the Quill & Packet. She’s fled the tattered remains of her high-profile career and bad divorce for the holiday town of her childhood, famous for its butter tarts, theatre, and a century-old feud.
