Baker Street West, Jackson, will host celebrated author Bonnie MacBird from 11 am – 12:30 pm on Saturday, May 8, for a lively conversation with Baker Street West’s Dr. John Watson.
MacBird is the author of four novels written in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle, featuring Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, and released in 17 languages worldwide to critical acclaim. In addition to her writing, she has worked in theatre extensively as a playwright, actor, and director, winning three Emmy Awards for documentary writing/producing, eleven Cine Golden Eagles for scripted and documentary work, numerous produced plays and musicals, and theatre credits as an actor and director.
MacBird’s latest book, “The Three Locks,” intertwines three mysteries for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson to pursue through the streets of London and Cambridge. Holmes and Watson risk life and limb to solve murders, tangling with prestidigitators and priests, scientists and scheming sisters, and a heat wave that melts the countryside.
With her background in theatre, MacBird’s videoconference interview with Baker Street Player Dr. Watson (Joe Svec) promises to be lively and fun. MacBird will participate from her home in London (in 2021); Dr Watson from 221B Baker Street West (in 1895).
Baker Street West is a non-profit arts organization that produces plays, podcasts, mystery dinner theatre, and more from Victoria Square, 204 Main Street, Jackson (second floor of Hein & Co. Bookstore), a remarkable Victorian London neighborhood with seven period retail “shoppes” and featuring a re-creation of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson’s apartment, 221B Baker Street.
