Jess Lourey's "Litani" Launch Party and Multi-Author Extravaganza!

Join us on 10/30 at 2:00 pm for a one-of-a-kind event. There will be tricks, treats, door prizes, and wine to celebrate the launch of Litani, Edgar-nominated author Jess Lourey’s latest Minnesota-based, true-crime-inspired mystery. Jess will be joined by authors Lori Rader-Day, Susanna Calkins, Shannon Baker, Erica Ruth Neubauer, and Jessie Chandler, who will also be answering questions about and signing copies of their latest books.

In the summer of ’84, fourteen-year-old Frankie Jubilee is shuttled off to Litani, Minnesota, to live with her estranged mother, a county prosecutor she barely knows. From the start, Frankie senses something uneasy going on in the small town. The locals whisper about The Game, and her mother warns her to stay out of the woods and away from adults.

When a bullying gang of girls invites Frankie to The Game, she accepts, determined to find out what’s really going on in Litani. She’s not the only one becoming paranoid. Hysteria burns through the community. Dark secrets emerge. And Frankie fears that, even in the bright light of day, she might be living among monsters.

There will be no formal talk, just a chance to chat with eight incredible mystery authors, score some yummy treats, hang out with book lovers, and get books signed. The authors write across sub-genres, including historical, cozy, humorous, and domestic suspense, so there will be a book for everyone!
