Don't miss Megan Abbott as she graces Oxford and Square Books with her presence on Wed July 8th.
Despite having only a few books under her belt, Megan is gaining quite the reputation as the queen of noir. Her previous book, Queenpin won the Edgar Award for best paperback original. She is currently on tour in support of her recently released novel, Bury Me Deep, which is a great ride and superb as well. An added bonus is that not only do her books kick ass and have incredible cover art but they are also paperbacks so they are affordable too.
We're going all out for this one as we are holding the event at the Lyric Theater. Start time is 5 pm with a signing/reception followed by a reading at 5:30. And after that there will be a showing of the classic noir film, Baby Face, starring Barbara Stanwyk.
So come on down to the Lyric on Wednesday and meet Megan, support your local bartenders, support your local bookstore, support your local music venue, and enjoy a free reading and a free movie.
