Author Talk: Kimberly McCreight author of Reconstructing Amelia and Where They Found Her

Thursday April 23, 2015
7:00 PM
New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight will be at the library to discuss her newest book Where They Found Her which goes on sale April 14, 2015.

Kimberly McCreight’s Reconstructing Amelia was one of those rare debut novels that caught fire with readers and critics alike. An instant New York Times bestseller and Top Ten Reader’s Favorite, the haunting story of a mother’s search for the truth about her dead daughter was a finalist for many major honors. People Magazine called it, “A nail-biter for Gone Girl fans.” Entertainment Weekly extolled, “Like Gone Girl, Reconstructing Amelia seamlessly marries a crime story with a relationship drama. And like Gone Girl, it should be hailed as one of the best books of the year.” The novel has been acquired in seventeen countries and an HBO film starring Nicole Kidman is in the works. 

Book Cover for Where They Found HerNow, with her highly anticipated second novel, Where They Found Her (Harper; on sale April 14, 2015), McCreight has crafted another wholly original, emotionally powerful narrative of psychological suspense and will be at the library to talk about her new book. Unfolding from multiple perspectives that raise questions about the reliability of the stories we are being told, the novel traces the aftermath of an infant’s body being discovered in the woods near the prestigious University in a well-to-do New Jersey town. Working the story for the local paper is freelance journalist Molly Anderson, anxious about the assignment because of the severe depression she battled after the loss of her own baby. Will her investigation send her spiraling back to that dark, dark place?

The tangled truth about the baby’s death draws Molly into the lives of, Sandy, a high school dropout searching for her volatile mother, and PTA president Barbara, who’s struggling to cope with her young son’s sudden disturbing outbursts. Molly’s diligent reporting ultimately unearths some of the community’s darkest secrets, including decades’ worth of unreported sexual assaults. 

Refreshments will be provided. 

This program is supported by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.

Praise for Where They Found Her:

“A roller-coaster of a novel, with finely drawn characters whose lives unravel when a dead newborn is found in their affluent college town—and the past refuses to stay hidden. How lucky for us readers—McCreight has once again proven herself to be an insightful writer capable of taking us on a hell of a ride.”

—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Time and The Storyteller

“Clever and scary…McCreight has her finger on the private school zeitgeist…”

—USA Today

“Coiled as tightly as a spring, Where They Found Her begins with a small town’s tragedy and doesn’t relent until every secret, and character, is exposed. Kimberly McCreight has written another satisfying, dark page-turner that pounces off the page.”

—Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet
