Event description
Join us for an evening with author Alicia Bessette as she discusses her new book, Smile Beach Murder, with novelist Matthew Quick.

About this event

In conversation with Matthew Quick

From author Alicia Bessette comes an all-new mystery series featuring Callie Padget, a former reporter turned bookshop clerk on the Outer Banks who is pulled into a deadly web of secrets when a mysterious fall at a lighthouse echoes a tragedy from her past. “I love every wise, graceful word Alicia Bessette writes," says number-one New York Times bestselling author Sarah Pekkanen, "and Smile Beach Murder is a perfect example of why: Her descriptions are so vivid you can feel the salty tang of the ocean breeze, and her pages are populated by quirky, unique characters. Throw in a murder with eerie echoes of the past, and you’ve got a recipe for an absolutely terrific summer read.”

Before authoring the Outer Banks Bookshop mystery series, Alicia Bessette worked as a reporter in her home state of Massachusetts, where her writing won a first-place award from the New England Newspaper & Press Association. A pianist, published poet, and enthusiastic birdwatcher, she now loves living in coastal North Carolina with her husband, novelist Matthew Quick.

Matthew Quick is the New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook—which was made into an Oscar-winning film—and eight other novels.

Books will be available for purchase at the library on event night.

A book signing will follow the presentation.

Registration recommended.
