An Evening with Author Joanna Schaffhausen
February 24, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Simsbury Public Library, 725 Hopmeadow Street
Simsbury, CT 06070 United States
The Friends of the Simsbury Public Library is excited to host critically-acclaimed mystery author Joanna Schaffhausen on Monday, February 24th at 6:30 p.m. in the Program Room. Ms. Schaffhausen will be discussing All the Best Lies, the third novel of her highly-anticipated, award-winning Ellery Hathaway mystery series.
Joanna Schaffhausen has kept readers up late and on the edge of their seats with her remarkable debut The Vanishing Season and its gripping follow-up No Mercy. In Schaffhausen’s latest swiftly paced and harrowing crime thriller, police office Ellery Hathaway and FBI profiler Reed Markham take on two difficult new cases–one dealing with a violent serial rapist; the other a long-ago fire that resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy. “Ellery and Reed are a complex team whose damaged psyches and feelings for each other make them a believable force for better in a city with a rough past. Schaffhausen writes gritty characters and weary victims with great skill,” said Booklist.
Joanna Schaffhausen wields a mean scalpel, skills developed in her years studying neuroscience. She has a doctorate in psychology, which reflects her long-standing interest in the brain–how it develops and the many ways it can go wrong. Previously, Ms. Schaffhausen worked for ABC News, writing programs such as World News Tonight, Good Morning America, and 20/20. She lives in the Boston area.
This program is free and open to all, and will take place in the library’s program room. Reservations are suggested by February 17, 2020. Sign up at the library’s reference desk, register on-line at www.simsburylibrary.info (and click on “Calendar”), or call the library at (860) 658-7663.
