   12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM SKYPE Session with Karen White  
    Contact: Reference Desk   203-736-1482   
   

Our August Lunchtime Book Discussion will feature a special conversation via Skype with Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty novels.


Karen’s roots run deep in the South where many of her novels are set.  Her intricate plot lines and compelling characters charm and captivate readers with just the right mix of family drama, mystery, intrigue and romance.


Karen White will be discussing her novel Flight Patterns. This is a book that is hard to put down until the last secret is uncovered and the last mystery resolved. The true beauty of White’s writing comes in her creation of characters. It is one of the most satisfying stories you will read all summer long.

Although we will be discussing Flight Patterns with the author,  participants are welcome to attend and  ask questions unrelated  to the book.

Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.  Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required
