Sara Paretsky is Visiting the Library

On Friday, September 25, acclaimed writer and Lawrence native Sara Paretsky will be at the library for a reading and book signing. Paretsky’s latest book Hardball was released earlier this week.

Hardball is the thirteenth book to feature V.I. Warshawski—Paretsky’s female, no-nonsense private investigator. The book finds Warshawski taking the case of an elderly woman whose son has been missing for forty years. It draws on Paretsky’s own experience in Chicago during the late 1960s to address themes of race, corruption, and long buried secrets.

For more about Paretsky, check out the recent article about her in the Lawrence Journal-World or visit her website at Reviews of Hardball can be found at Barnes and Noble Review and the New York Times.

The Raven Bookstore will make copies of Hardball available for purchase. The event begins 7 PM and is free and open to the public.
