The Facts Behind Writing Crime Fiction

On Tuesday, January 31, the Grand Rapids Area Library held a program featuring NE MN District Court Judge Mark Munger. Munger is the author of ten books, both fiction and nonfiction. During his presentation Munger talked about: his background, his writing experience, and what went into the process of creating his newest novel, “Boomtown.” Recorded by volunteer David Hayes, this program can be seen on ICTV’s Public Access Channel in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye on ICTV’s schedule for specific air dates and times.

From the ICTV Archives

Each Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm, ICTV pulls programs out of the archive of past productions and plays them on the Public Access Channel. Coming up on Saturday, January 28, we will be replaying the third of four Circles of Support programs talking about the issues surrounding heroin. This program is titled, “Heroin – A Medical Perspective.” This will be followed by three programs talking about the Quasquicentennial Time Capsule events that took place in Grand Rapids this past summer.
