Author Lisa Scottoline will discuss her books in two appearances Wednesday at Glen Allen High School as part of the 11th-annual All Henrico Reads program.
At a morning event at the school, Scottoline will speak to students from across Henrico County about her book “Keep Quiet.” At a free evening event open to the public, she will discuss her novel “After Anna.” Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Books will be available for sale after the evening talk and the author will be available to autograph them.
“Keep Quiet” is an emotionally gripping, morally complex story about the devastating consequences of a father’s decision to protect his son. Booklist said the author “brings tension to a boil” in the book’s “intriguing exploration of human frailties, justice, and family relationships.”
“After Anna” is an engaging thriller and a novel of emotional justice and legal intrigue. Publisher’s Weekly lauded the book as “filled with plenty of twists and complex characters.” The book includes layers of family drama and is centered on the return of an estranged child, murder and a search for the truth. Told from multiple points of view, the book illustrates the intensity of different perceptions.
Scottoline is a New York Times bestselling author of 32 novels. She also writes the weekly “Chick Wit” column with her daughter Francesca Serritella for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Find out more about the author at scottoline.com.
