Join us for an evening with Sulari Gentill, Hank Phillippi Ryan, and Eva Jurczyk moderated by Rachel Raczka of the Boston Globe.

“Everything was fine until it wasn’t — a scream in the library, books gone missing the first day on the job, a secret threatening to tear apart a perfect life. We’ll discuss intriguing mysteries with critically acclaimed authors Sulari Gentill, Hank Phillippi Ryan, and Eva Jurczyk.”

More information about each author: 

SULARI GENTILL is a USA Today bestselling author who has officially captivated readers and librarians with her “elegantly constructed, funny, and profound (PW starred)” mystery-within-a-mystery, THE WOMAN IN THE LIBRARY.

In THE WOMAN IN THE LIBRARY, the ornate reading room at the Boston Public Library is quiet, until the tranquility is shattered by a woman’s terrified scream. Security guards take charge instructing everyone inside to stay put. Four strangers, who’d happened to sit at the same table, pass the time in conversation and friendships are struck. Each has his or her own reasons for being in the reading room that morning—it just happens that one is a murderer.
