Join author and former El Paso County sheriff John Wesley Anderson as he launches his new book, "Sherlock Homes in Little London: 1896 The Missing Year."

Wed., Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. ppld.librarymarket.com/john-anderson-presents-sherlock-holmes-little-london-1896-missing-year

Sherlock Holmes fans the world over have long wondered what to make of 1896; the “Missing Year.” Of the fifty-six short stories and four novels, which constitute the canon of Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, one year has remained a mystery – where on earth did Sherlock Holmes and his intrepid friend, Dr. John H. Watson, spend the better part of 1896? Finally we know! During a chance discovery, in the spring of 2020, a black pocket notebook belonging to Dr. Watson was discovered. The notebook contained Dr. Watson’s personal notes detailing an unpublished investigation of an international counterfeiting ring which drew Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson away from their warm flat at 221 B Baker Street, London, England, and across “the pond” to Glen Eyrie Castle, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a small town in the American west once known as Little London.
