Mind Chimes Bookshop in downtown Three Lakes will welcome mystery author Joy Ann Ribar and her brand-new mystery, “Deep Green Envy,” Saturday, Sept. 25 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Weather permitting, this event will be held on the deck outside the bookshop. 

Ribar will perform a short reading from the third mystery in her Deep Lakes Cozy Mystery series, which is listed for an international Mystery and Mayhem Award for 2021. 

There will be time to meet and chat with Ribar after the reading, and also purchase signed copies of any of the four books in the series: “Deep Dark Secrets,” “Deep Bitter Roots” and prequel “Deep Flakes Christmas: A Nisse Visit.” 

Those attending the reading will be entered into a drawing for a free book. 

Ribar is a semiretired English instructor who lives in central Wisconsin, where she enjoys nature in all its forms. 

She is an award-winning short story and essay writer, and a member of the Wisconsin Writers Association, Blackbird Writers and Sisters in Crime.
