The Art of Constructing a Thriller: An Evening with Gillian Flynn
Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 6:00 PM (CDT)
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.
Following the discussion, books will be available for purchase courtesy of the Book Stall at Chestnut Court.
