EVENING WITH FRIENDS:Who-Done-It Tea Reception
Ten Dead Comedians

Special Friends Program 

Thursday, July 19  at 7:00 P.M. 

Our favorite professor is back . . . Dr. Marion Wrenn will be here at EMPL to discuss Fred Van Lente's book Ten Dead Comedians

at our “Who-Done-It Tea Reception”

Fred Van Lente's brilliant debut is both a savagely funny homage to the Golden Age of Mystery and a thoroughly contemporary show-business satire. As the story opens, nine comedians of various acclaim are summoned to the island retreat of legendary Hollywood funnyman Dustin Walker. The group includes a former late-night TV host, a washed-up improv instructor, a ridiculously wealthy "blue collar" comic, and a past-her-prime Vegas icon. All nine arrive via boat to find that every building on the island is completely deserted. Marooned without cell phone service or Wi-Fi signals, they soon find themselves being murdered one by one. But who is doing the killing, and why? A darkly clever take on Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None and other classics of the genre, Ten Dead Comedians is a marvel of literary ventriloquism, with hilarious comic monologues in the voice of every suspect. It's also an ingeniously plotted puzzler with a twist you'll never see coming.

The Plot Against America by Philip Roth
Moderater: Marion Wrenn

Philip Roth’s novel begins in 1940, with the election of Lindbergh, who blamed the Jews for pushing America toward war with Nazi Germany. Lindbergh’s admiration of Hitler and his openly anti-Semitic speeches cause increasing turmoil in the Roth household, and in nine-year-old Philip, as political events abroad overtake their lives. History will not let go, and as America is whipped into a deadly frenzy by demagogues, the Roths begin to expect the worst. The novel explores the convulsive collision of history and family.

After six years in prison, Sweden’s most notorious criminal Leo Duvnjac is free, acquitted of all but two of the ten bank robberies he and his two younger brothers pulled off.While behind bars, he befriended Sam Larsen, who was convicted of murdering his own father – and who also happens to be the brother of the cop who caught Leo, Detective John Broncks.  With Sam at his side, Leo seeks out his now-law-abiding brothers for one last job and a chance at redemption – or revenge. But Bronks is on to him, and Leo’s father has other plans for his sons . . . Now two sets of brothers will play out the tragic and thrilling destinies of childhoods built on heartbreaking betrayal.

AN EVENING WITH FRIENDS: Meet Allison Gaylin , Author of If I Die Tonight
Meet Author Allison Gaylin
If I Die Tonight
Thursday, August 16 at 7 p.m. 
at our “Hot in August Reception”
Prizes and Surprizes!
 
Reminiscent of the bestsellers of Laura Lippman and Harlan Coben – with a dose of Big Little Lies or Stranger Things – 
If I Die Tonight is an absorbing, addictive tale of psychological suspense, in which a seemingly open-and-shut police case with a clear-cut hero and villain, turns out to be anything but simple. Late one night in the quiet Hudson Valley town of Havenkill, a distraught woman stumbles into the police station – and lives are changed forever.  Aimee En, once a darling of the ‘80s pop music scene, claims that a teenage boy stole her car, and then ran over another young man who’d rushed to help.  As Liam Miller’s life hangs in the balance, the events of that fateful night begin to come into focus. But is everything as it seems?
 
Allison Gaylin is also the author of the highly acclaimed and Edgar Award-nominated What Remains of Me, and the USA Today bestselling, Shamus Award-winning Brenna Spector series.
