Calling all fiction readers: As part of my outreach as the Library Foundation's 2019 Writer-in-Residence, opens a new window, I'll be joining book club discussions at branch libraries all over town, all year long. Everyone's welcome, even if you've never come to one of your branch's meet-ups before!
Groups will be discussing my 2018 domestic suspense novel, Not That I Could Tell, opens a new window, set in nearby Yellow Springs, Ohio. A bestselling Book of the Month selection dubbed a "page turner a la Big Little Lies," the book is newly available in a special Reading Group Gold paperback edition. (The library has plenty of copies, and it’s available at Target stores nationwide and at your favorite booksellers.)
As a frequent speaker at private book clubs, I'm so excited to be adding these visits to the publicly accessible Writer-in-Residence repertoire! Read the book, find a branch meeting near you, and come as you are, or bring a friend! Ask me anything, learn more about the real-life inspiration behind the story, and spend an enriching hour with fellow readers.
If you own any of my books (or would like to gift a personalized copy to a friend who might enjoy them), bring them along and I'm happy to sign, too!
