An Evening with Mystery Writers: Sulari Gentill, Hank Phillippe Ryan and Eva Jurczyk

"She's on the case."

Join us for an evening with Sulari Gentill, Hank Phillippe 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 these three critically acclaimed authors.

Sulari Gentill - 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 had 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. 

Hank Phillippe Ryan - In Her Perfect Life, Lily Green is an Emmy Award-winning television reporter, and everyone knows her.  One wrong move and she becomes a hashtag.  When someone tries to ruin her perceived perfection, how far will she go to stop them?

Eva Jurczyk - The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections is a darkly comedic, literary mystery about a career librarian who is suddenly instated as the director of a prestigious university collection and its eccentric staff, when a whole host of priceless books go missing.
