Peter Leonard, son of the late legendary crime novelist and screenwriter Elmore Leonard, is visiting Clermont County Public Library’s Williamsburg Branch on Thursday, Nov. 7.

Peter is a successful writer himself, publishing several popular books full of suspense. Peter’s latest possible project is making headlines following his father’s death in August.

His father, Elmore, is often noted as America’s greatest crime writer. His work has inspired movies like Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, 3:10 to Yuma and TV shows like FX’s hit-series Justified.

Elmore was reportedly working on a new novel when he died this summer. According to the BBC, Peter will be finishing the book for his dad.

Peter Leonard will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Williamsburg Branch located at 594 Main St. Williamsburg, OH 45176. You may pre-register by visiting the branch, calling 513-724-1070, or signing up online.
