Jess Lourey is launching a new novel set during the 1980s in small town Minnesota. Cassie McDowell’s life seems perfectly wholesome. She lives on a farm, loves school, and has a crush on the nicest boy in class. All that changes when someone comes hunting in Lilydale. One by one, local boys go missing. One by one, they return changed—violent, moody, and withdrawn. Then Cassie’s own sister undergoes the dark change. If she is to survive, Cassie must find her way in an adult world where every sin is justified, and only the truth is unforgivable.
This event is a launch party: there will be wine, cake, a chance to win an 80's kit, and if all that wasn't exciting enough, the first 10 people in the door will get free 80's themed gift bags! Author Jess Lourey will be interviewed by Kate Malmon and then we'll open up to an audience Q&A. This is a seated event. Doors open at 6:30.
