CANCELLED Author Event: The Crossing

This event has been cancelled.

A retired Illinois State Police (ISP) captain will be on hand to discuss both his new crime thriller and his career. Ed Traylor, who spent 29 years with the ISP, is the author of The Crossing, which details a sweeping terror attack that originates from the U.S. – Mexican border. During the one-hour program, Traylor will also discuss some of the investigations he participated in during his ISP career.

The Crossing earned second place at the Public Safety Writers Association conference in Las Vegas in July 2015. Reviewers have lauded The Crossing for its fast-moving style, intricate detail, realistic tone, and gripping conclusion. Much of the work, including several characters, are based in Illinois.

Traylor has held a string of successful author appearances across Illinois in the past year, including well-attended book signings at Barnes and Noble locations in Bloomington and Springfield. His discussions have been extremely well-received by enthusiastic audiences.
