Popular mystery author Elaine Viets returns to her hardboiled roots with her Angela Richman, Death Investigator series. In “Late for His Own Funeral,” Angela suspects foul play when a disgraced resident of the tony neighborhood of Chouteau Forest survives one car crash only to then be involved in another. After his Porsche careened off the road, attendees at Sterling Chaney’s funeral were shocked to see him interrupt his own eulogies. The story attracts widespread media coverage, and Sterling revels in the spotlight until it’s revealed that he earned his fortune via sordid means. Then there’s a second fatal crash. Angela Richman must determine: were both crashes merely accidents, or was someone doubly determined to kill Sterling?

SLCL Presents Jason Kander--Ticketed Event

Thursday, July 14th, 7pm CST
The J, Mirowitz Performing Arts Center
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, SLCL Authors @ the J, the Westfall Politics and History Series, and Left Bank Books present An Evening with Former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, author of “Invisible Storm: A Soldier’s Memoir of Politics and PTSD.

 

Jason Kander will be in conversation with Missouri State Senator Jill Schupp.

In 2017, President Obama was asked who gave him hope for the future of the country, and Jason Kander was the first name he mentioned. Suddenly, Jason was a national figure. As observers assumed he was preparing a run for the presidency, Jason announced a bid for mayor of Kansas City instead and was headed for a landslide victory. But after eleven years battling PTSD from his service in Afghanistan, Jason was seized by depression and suicidal thoughts. He dropped out of the mayor’s race and out of public life. In this brutally honest memoir, Jason Kander has written the book he himself needed in the most painful moments of his PTSD. We see him struggle with undiagnosed illness; witness his family buoy him through challenging treatment; and, giving hope to so many of us, see him heal.

INDIVIDUAL TICKET $35 (Admits ONE and includes one pre-signed copy of “Invisible Storm”) 

OR

PACKAGE TICKET $40 (Admits TWO and includes one pre-signed copy of “Invisible Storm”) 

Due to time constraints, there will not be a book signing line following the presentation.
