Becoming the Detective: The Making of a Genre (at the Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street) and Clever Criminals and Daring Detectives (at The Rosenbach, 2008-2010 Delancey Place) draw from the rich collections at the Free Library of Philadelphia and the Rosenbach to bring crime stories front and center, uncovering what has made this form of literature one of the most enduring and popular.
