Virtual Program with Megan Miranda

Domestic Thriller Night!

An Evening with Megan Miranda and Shari Lapena  

(In Conversation with bestselling author Mary Kubica)

Bestselling author Megan Miranda’s new book is described as the perfect summer beach read. Such A Quiet Place is set in a seemingly idyllic neighborhood. Scratch the surface though, and there is deceit and viciousness festering inside the households of this community.   Shari Lapena's Not A Happy Family has it all: rich people behaving badly, sibling rivalry, twists, turns, red herrings, and, of course, a few murders interspersed. When Fred and Sheila Merton are savagely killed, their adult kids are devastated. Or are they? Lapena’s new book brings to life the world of the rich and powerful with the dysfunctional Merton family. In this family, everyone is keeping secrets. Even the dead.
