Author Reading: “Tips for Living”

author eventThursday, April 19, 7 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

Come meet author Renee Shafransky as she reads from her debut mystery Tips for Living. Described by Kirkus Reviews as “entertaining… nail-biting and action-packed,” Shafransky’s novel tells the gripping story of Nora Glasser who flees NYC for a new start in the small town of Pequod after her husband fathers a child with his mistress. When her ex and his new family move to Pequod and end up dead, Nora becomes the prime suspect when she can remember nothing about the night of the murders. Complex and engrossing, Tips for Living was praised by Booklist as “a clever suspense novel with… a gutsy heroine deserving of her own series.” Shafransky will take questions following her reading, and copies of Tips for Living will be available to purchase.
