Live-stream: Prof. Kenneth Elzinga

December 10, 2014 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
3:30 pm – 5:00 pm


Esteemed UVA Economics Professor Kenneth Elzinga writes mystery novels using the pen name Marshall Jevons. Join us to watch a livestream interview with Professor Elzinga about The Mystery of the Invisible Hand.  This late afternoon get-together to watch the livestream interview is the inaugural UVA Club of Washington event promoting the new HooReads program, which will highlight literature written by UVA faculty.  The livestream interview will take place from 4 – 4:45 pm.

Book Description:  Henry Spearman, the balding economics professor with a knack for solving crimes, returns in the The Mystery of the Invisible Hand – a clever whodunit of campus intrigue, stolen art, and murder.  Having just won the Nobel Prize, Spearman accepts an invitation to lecture at Monte Vista University.  He arrives in the wake of a puzzling art heist with plans to teach a course on art and economics — only to be faced with the alleged suicide of womanizing artist-in-residence Tristan Wheeler.  When it becomes clear that Wheeler had serious enemies and that a murderer is in their midst, Henry Spearman is on the case.
The Mystery of the Invisible Hand is available for sale online from the UVA Bookstore website.

Professor Elzinga has also written a delightful post from the perspective of character Henry Spearman for the Thoughts From the Lawn blog.
