Best-selling author Margaret Coel comes to DU

New York Times best-selling mystery novelist Margaret Coel will be the featured speaker for DU’s annual Penrose Library Author’s Lecture on Thursday, April 30.

Coel will be discussing her work, writing process and the art of writing mysteries from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Driscoll Ballroom.

Her latest novel, Blood Memory, introduces an investigative reporter for one of Denver’s major newspapers who has been targeted for assassination because of her coverage of the Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes’ claim for their ancestral lands.

Coel is the author of many acclaimed mystery novels—including Killing RavenEye of the WolfThe Girl with Braided Hair and several works of non-fiction. She is considered an expert on the Arapaho Indians and is originally a historian by training.

The lecture is free and open to DU students, faculty, staff and community members. Reservations are required and can be made online at or by calling 303-871-3016.

Penrose Library and the Office of the Provost are hosting the event.
