AUTHOR TALK: JAMES R. BENN WITH SOLEMN GRAVES

September 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Thursday Sept 13th, 7pm

The Essex Library is honored to welcome back James Benn in celebration of the release of his 13th Billy Boyle mystery, Solemn Graves. July, 1944, a full month after D-Day. Billy, Kaz, and Big Mike are assigned to investigate a murder close to the front lines in Normandy. An American officer has been found dead in a manor house serving as an advance headquarters outside the town of Trévières. Major Jerome was far from his own unit, arrived unexpectedly, and was murdered in the dark of night. Join us, Thursday, September 13 at 7 p.m., to hear the fascinating history of Solemn Graves that Publishers Weekly described “Exceptional . . . Benn has never been better at integrating a whodunit plot line with a realistic depiction of life on or near the battlefield.”

Copies of his books will be available for purchase and signing.

This event is free and open to the public. Advance registration is suggested; please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 for more information or to register. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
