Booker Prize winning author John Banville will wrap up our Winter Coffee & Crime series on Saturday, March 17 at 10 am with a mystery, written as Benjamin Black, Christine Falls.
Banville is a talented author who most recently won the Man Booker Prize for The Sea.
His debut crime novel, Christine Falls, is set in the 1950's in Banville's native Ireland and introduces the character of Quirke, a Dublin pathologist, who finds himself in the midst of several mysteries beginning with the odd behaviour of his brother, a doctor, who appears to have concealed the cause of death of a young woman. The death of the woman, the Christine Falls of the title, leads Quirke into an investigation of high Catholic society both in Dublin as well as Boston.
The Coffee & Crime breakfast begins at 10 am and includes a continental breakfast along with talk and signing by the author. Cost is $5 and reservations are necessary.
