Author Talk with local author Deborah LevisonWednesday March 29, 2023
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Deborah Levison's life has two parts: the first in Canada, where she attended University of Toronto and the Royal Conservatory of Music, and the second in Connecticut, where she lives with three children, two doodles, and one husband. Her nonfiction true crime story, THE CRATE, explores family intrigue and a real life murder mystery. Reviewers have called it “gorgeous and poetic,” “heart-wrenching,” and “a brilliant story” and has won seven literary awards.
Levison’s debut fiction novel, A NEST OF SNAKES, is part thriller, part courtroom drama based on real-life abuse at elite New England private schools. Reviewers call it “a roller-coaster ride of surprising twists” leading to a “staggering climax and an absolutely perfect ending.” Monster Librarian hails A NEST OF SNAKES as one of the fall’s most talked-about novels.
Join us as Deborah talks about writing these personal stories filled with mysteries, thrills and surprises and how the process helped her connect to her own family in a deeper way.
