St. Louis County Library presents Laura Lippman.
Laura Lippman, "My Life as a Villainess: Essays"
In Conversation with Megan Abbott
Since Laura Lippman's debut novel in 1997, she has been recognized as a distinctive voice in mystery fiction and named one of the "essential" crime writers of the last 100 years. In this collection of nonfiction essays, Lippman offers her take on a woman's life across the decades. Her childhood and school years, her newspaper career, her experiences as a novelist, mother and reader—Lippman finds universal touchstones in an unusual life that has as many twists as her award-winning crime fiction.
Interview moderator Megan Abbott is the author of nine hit novels, including "Give Me Your Hand" and "You Will Know Me." She is the co-creator of the USA Network series "Dare Me."
