Book Fair

Saturday, November 23, 2013 20 Kislev 5774

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Bnai Keshet and Watchung Booksellers present:

An Evening With Sara Paretsky, one of the foremost mystery writers of our time

7pm: Pre-reading Nosh: BK cooks Viennese and Chicago-style food in honor of Paretsky's characters, with a glass of wine and a chance to browse our Book Festival

8pm: Reading by award-winning novelist Sara Paretsky, followed by a Q-and-A and book signing
Paretsky will be reading from her just-published novel CRITICAL MASS, in which her famous detective V. I. Warshawski investigates the dramatic past of her close friend, the Viennese-born doctor Lotty Herschel. This riveting narrative moves between present-day Chicago, where the daughter and grandson of a childhood friend of Lotty's are missing, and the story of a Jewish woman physicist in Nazi-occupied Austria, as Warshawski tries to prevent the awful past from asserting itself again upon her friends.
