Event Details

A perfect wife disappears, and her husband-of-the-year is thrown into a situation gone terribly wrong. In a story full of surprising twists, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl tracks the course of a marriage gone spectacularly wrong. For the protagonists, it’s a psychological battle with everything at stake; for the reader, an excavation of human failings and incredible depths of betrayal . . . and a mystery whose resolution is every bit as troubling as it's beginning.

Join New York Times bestselling author Gillian Flynn for a frank discussion on constructing a thriller, building complex female protagonists, why the Midwest is the best place for a mystery, and how Flynn's former job as Entertainment Weekly's TV critic helped her become a mystery writer.

  • Cocktail Party & Book Lecture: The intimate party begins at 6 PM in the Arches Garden Room of the Winnetka Community House. Guests will enjoy cocktails and appetizers, as well as the ability to mingle with Gillian Flynn and the opportunity to win a private book club party with the author. Tickets also include reserved seating to the book lecture, which will start at 7:30 PM in Matz Hall of the Winnetka Community House. Tickets $30
  • Book Lecture ONLY: Guests will enjoy general admission to the book lecture with Gillian Flynn, which will start at 7:30 PM in Matz Hall of the Winnetka Community House. Tickets $10
