Join us for an evening with bestselling novelist Scott Turow on Friday, December 6, 2013; 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at our Arthur C. Nielsen, Jr. Campus!
Nobody blends political and legal intrigue better than Chicago’s own Scott Turow. To launch the weekend’s festivities, Mr. Turow will join us for a reading and discussion of his new novel, “Identical.” This thriller illuminates the complex story of State Sen. Paul Giannis’ life in politics and his candidacy for mayor of Kindle County. Complications arise when Giannis’ identical twin brother Cass, is released from prison, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend. In classic Turow style, a re-investigation of the old murder case uncovers a mysterious web of murder, sex and betrayal. The Los Angeles Times Book Review called Turow’s latest book “a compulsively readable crime story,” and said, “Even when ‘Identical’s’ many twists challenge the reader to figure out who’s on first, it is Turow’s deftly drawn characters — coping with advancing age, old grief and lost love — that linger in the mind.”
A book signing and a reception with refreshments will follow Mr. Turow’s presentation. Books will be available for purchase at each event, but are not included in the ticket price. All proceeds benefit North Shore Senior Center and its support services for older adults.
Admission: $25 per person (Ages 18 and under are admitted for free.)
