This author of novels set in the Victorian era has modernized Sherlock Holmes with her books pairing him up with Mary Russell, an American-Jewish scholar-flapper more than capable of keeping up with his cases. In “The Murder of Mary Russell,” she finds her life in danger after a man arrives on the doorstep claiming to be their housekeeper’s son.

BookPeople is donating 5 percent of sales from this event to the Austin Public Library Foundation, an amount King will match.

Details: 2 p.m. Sunday. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd. 512-472-5050, bookpeople.com.
