Towne Center Books is happy to present authors Cara Black and Susan Shea for a morning of conversation, coffee and delicious pastries. Cara Black is the New York Times bestselling author of 17 books in the Private Investigator Aimée Leduc series, which is set in Paris. Her newest book is the latest in that series, Murder in St. Germain. Susan Shea is the critically acclaimed author of the Dani O’Rourke mystery series.

Towne Center Books is happy to present author Bianca Marais as we celebrate her debut novel Hum If You Don’t Know the Words.
In this lyrical first novel, Marais transports readers to 1970s South Africa, when apartheid still ruled. Interwoven chapters follow the story of ten-year-old Robin, coming of age after her parents are found dead, and of Beauty, a Xhosa woman actively searching for her daughter, who goes missing after a Soweto uprising. With vivid imagery, Marais brings compelling characters to life to create a haunting novel about finding family in unexpected places and maintaining culture in the face of adversity.

Towne Center Books is happy to present author Gin Phillips for a morning of conversation and coffee. She will be discussing her latest book, Fierce Kingdom.
This electrifying novel explores the primal and unyielding bond between a mother, Joan, and her son, and the lengths she’ll go to protect him after the two become trapped in a zoo with a gunman on the loose. Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.
