Please join us for a presentation with Holly FitzGerald, author of the new adventure memoir Ruthless River. Book purchases from Eight Cousins Books and signings will follow the event.

No registration is required.


Holly and her husband, Fitz—married less than two years—set out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival.

On a small, soon-ravaged raft that quickly becomes their entire universe through dangerous waters alive with deadly animals and fish, their only choice: to continue on, despite the rush of insects swarming them by day, the sounds of encroaching predators at night. Without food or means of communication, with no one to hear their cries for help or on a search-and-rescue expedition to find them, the author and her husband make their way, fighting to conquer starvation and navigate the brute force of the river, their only hope for survival, in spite of hunger and weakening resolve, to somehow, miraculously hang on and find their way east to a large riverside town, before it is too late.

“Both travel memoir and shocking adventure story, like a real-life Survivor or Naked and Afraid . . . A powerful story about survival, love, and faith in the face of impossible odds . . . Unputdownable . . . absolutely fascinating.”
—Katie Lawrence, Library Journal

“Vivid and consistently compelling . . . An absorbing tale of survival, love, and the generosity of people who helped save their lives.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“A detailed, high-stakes debut memoir . . . FitzGerald weaves in the stories from their past with palpable, evocative details of their daily struggles with starvation, strong currents, and despair, all while the couple’s love, self-knowledge, and faith deepen . . . Recommended for fans of survival narratives, coming-of-maturity stories, and travelogues from off the beaten path.”
—Louisa Whitfield-Smith, Booklist

I KNOW A SECRET has our favorite crime fighting duo Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles investigating the gruesome staged murder of a horror film producer in this edge-of-your-seat thriller. In a house decorated with horror movie posters, a young woman’s body is found. She lies on her bed, her eyes removed and placed in the palm of her hand, a gesture that echoes the terrifying films she produces. Is a crazed movie fan reenacting scenes from those disturbing films? When another victim is found, again with no apparent cause of death and a grotesquely staged crime scene, Jane and Maura realize the killer has widened his circle of targets. He’s chosen one particular woman for his next victim, and she knows he’s coming for her next. She’s the only one who can help Jane and Maura catch the killer. But she knows a secret. And it’s a secret she’ll never tell.

I KNOW A SECRET is the 12th book in RIZZOLI & ISLES’ best selling suspense and thriller novel series and will finally reveal what happens between Maura and Daniel Brophy – and which man Angela chooses.

Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D. While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. Tess’s first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), The Bone Garden (2007), The Keepsake (2008; UK title: Keeping the Dead), Ice Cold (2010; UK title: The Killing Place), The Silent Girl (2011), Last To Die (August 2012), Die Again (January 2015) and Playing With Fire (coming October 27, 2015). Her books have been published in forty countries, and more than 30 million copies have been sold around the world. Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. Now retired from medicine, she writes full time. She lives in Maine.

“Tess Gerritsen’s clever plotting and medical knowledge give her thrillers that extra edge. Expect a white-knuckle ride to very dark places.” 
—Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

“Suspense doesn’t get smarter than this.” – New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

“Gerritsen has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists.” – The Associated Press

“One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today.” – The Providence Journal

Been a housewife? A domestic worker? Single parent? Lived in a creepy old house? You think your life's been boring--but exciting plots are buried in your own expertise. Find the clues to the novel only you can write with sisters in crime, Frances McNamara, Barbara Struna, and Lea Wait. 

Signed books will be available for purchase from Eight Cousins Books.

No registration required.


Frances McNamara: Frances grew up in Boston where her father was Police Commissioner in the 1960s. As a librarian she worked at Wellesley College, then, NELINET, OCLC and finally University of Chicago Library.  After writing scenarios for an amateur mystery night group in Granville OH, Frances turned to mystery novels. She has published six titles in the Emily Cabot Mysteries, featuring a fictional heroine, along with real-life historical figures, with Allium Press of Chicago, the first being DEATH AT THE FAIR, and the most recent, DEATH AT THE PARIS EXPOSITION. The mysteries are set in the 1890's and the series will extend into the 1900's. Frances is currently working on a second contemporary mystery series to be set in Boston, where she now lives.

Barbara Struna: A storyteller at heart, Struna bases her tales on the history, myth, and legends of Cape Cod and her own personal experiences.  She created a contemporary character, amateur sleuth, Nancy Caldwell, the vehicle that moves the story between time periods in alternating chapters. Struna’s first two successful novels, The Old Cape House and The Old Cape Teapot, were pirate adventures based on the 1717 Cape legend of Maria Hallett and her pirate lover Sam Bellamy, captain of the wrecked ship Whydah. Her research took her on a ten year journey trying to decipher the facts from the legend and then another three years of crafting her story. Struna’s imagination took flight once more when she discovered a turquoise 1940 Fiesta-ware cup buried in her Cape woods, it ignited an idea for a story about the forties on Cape Cod and ‘Old Hollywood’ and her third novel, The Old Cape Hollywood Secret, was born. With more than 1000 reviews and hundreds of followers, Struna keeps her readership anticipating the next Old Cape story, this time featuring Alaska and Provincetown in the late 1800’s coming in 2019. Struna is a member of International Thriller Writers, Panelist Thrillerfest 2016; Member in Letters, National League of American Pen Women; President of Cape Cod Writers Center; Sisters In Crime, National, New England, LA. and writes a blog about the unique facts and myths of Cape Cod.

Lea Wait: Maine author Lea Wait writes two mystery series and historical novels for ages 8 and up. Her Shadows Antique Print Mystery series features antique print dealer Maggie Summer. SHADOWS AT THE FAIR, the first in the series, was a finalist for a "best first mystery" Agatha award. SHADOWS ON A MORNING IN MAINE is the most recent (the 8th) in the series. Lea also writes the Mainely Needlepoint series. TWISTED THREADS, the first in the series, was published in January, 2015 and was a USA Today best seller. TIGHTENING THE THREADS, the 5th in the series, is the most recent, published in March, 2017. UNCERTAIN GLORY, set in 1861, is the most recent of her books for young people.

About the book:

"Lissie Woodham and her sister Janey were playing with their porcelain dolls in the front yard when a puppy scampered by. Lissie chased after the pup and returned to find Janey-- and her precious doll gone. Forty years later Lis-- now a mother with a college-age daughter of her own-- still blames herself for what happened. Every year their mother places a classified ad in the local paper with a picture of the toy Janey had with her that day, offering a generous cash reward for its return. This year, the doll came home. But someone knows the truth about what happened all those years ago, and is desperate to keep it hidden." - Publisher

Explore the fabric of America over hot coffee and penny candy. Step through the wooden doors of a New England general store and step back in time, into a Norman Rockwell painting and into the heart of America. New England's General Stores offers a nostalgic picture of this colonial staple and, fortunately, steadfast institution of small towns from Connecticut to Maine. This is where children of each generation take their first allowance to buy their very own penny candy. Locals have swapped stories at these counters from gossip to whispers of revolution. In tough times, the general store treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. Stubborn as New Englanders themselves, the general store has refused to become a mere sentimental relic of an earlier age.
 
Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for "Chronicle," WCVB-TV/Boston's award-winning--and America's longest-running, locally-produced--nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station's political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He lives just west of Boston with his wife and two daughters. He is the author of Globe Pequot's New England Notebook and the Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds.

Join us for a creative nonfiction workshop that intentionally combines different forms of the genre—personal essays, travelogues, biographies—and encourages exploration in the genre. Participants will examine and discuss short 1-page essays, as well as receiving feedback on their personal essays. There will be also be some discussion on finding an agent and publisher, giving a reading, and surviving as a writer in the world.

Registration is strongly encouraged; 15 seats available. Registration will begin on Wednesday, October 18.


An innovative essayist (Halls of Fame, 2001) and dynamic anthologist, (The Lost Origins of the Essay, 2009) John D’Agata is the author of Halls of Fame, About a Mountain, and The Lifespan of a Fact, as well as the editor of the 3-volume series, A New History of the Essay, which includes the anthologies The Next American Essay, The Making of the American Essay, and The Lost Origins of the Essay. His work has been supported by a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Howard Foundation Fellowship, an NEA Literature Fellowship, and a Lannan Foundation Fellowship. He holds a B.A. from Hobart College and two M.F.A.s from the University of Iowa, and recently his essays have appeared in The Believer, Harper's, Gulf Coast, and Conjunctions. John D’Agata lives in Iowa City with a dog named Boeing, and he teaches creative writing at the University of Iowa where he directs the graduate Nonfiction Writing Program.

“D’Agata . . . has spent the last 15 years trying to use the essay as Defoe used the novel: to get out of the impasse over what’s real and what’s not, and to solve the anxiety over the veracity of the media we consume, this time by foregrounding that anxiety itself, and asking us to confront it head on. His trilogy, A New History of the Essay, is a thoughtful alternative road map to how we might think of the essay and its role in the current moment.”—Los Angeles Times

“John D’Agata is a champion of the essay, a crusader for lost forms, a defender of nonfiction as an art. . . His project—that of reshaping the genre of creative nonfiction—is a bold one, and in these anthologies, the [essay] becomes a spiritual vessel, a portal to deeper truths.”—Iowa Review

“Quixotic … ambitious….What D’Agata has in mind, on one level, is to push the conversation, to throw a thought-bomb into the center of the room.”—Lit Hub

“John D’Agata is a groundbreaking literary activist. It is due to him and these anthologies that the most exciting writing today is happening in the realm of nonfiction, in particularly the realm of the essay, which he has, near-single-handedly, rescued from the literary dustbin and turned into a vital contemporary art form. A New History of the Essay is essential reading for anyone interested in the future of nonfiction.”—Heidi Julavits
