Author Mary Kubica: Every Last Lie

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
FRANKFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICT
Meeting Room A/B

Bestselling author, Mary Kubica, returns to Frankfort!  Join us this evening as we celebrate her new book, Every Last Lie.

 

Clara Solberg’s world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident…until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon. Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick’s death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth. Who would have wanted Nick dead? And, more important, why?

 

 

Please RSVP to reserve your seat - call us at 815-534-6173 or register online.

 

Every Last Lie will be available for purchase from the Friends of the Frankfort Public Library District. Payments of cash or check are accepted. All proceeds from book sales support the Library’s services and programming. 

 

Ms. Kubica is happy to autograph her books and take pictures with her fans.

 

Doors open at 6:30pm. Light refreshments will be served.
