Virtual Event with Mary Kubica

Join Charlie Donlea in conversation with New York Times bestselling author Mary Kubica as they discuss their latest thrillers––The Suicide House and The Other Mrs.––hosted by Barrington Area Library on Wednesday, September 30 @ 7:00PM (Central).

On the Agenda:

  • Mary's blockbuster Netflix deal and her role as executive producer of the film version of The Other Mrs.

  • If Hollywood has come calling for any of their other books

  • The pressures of writing one book a year, and how they manage to keep it up.

  • The long list of rejections they received and the improbable road they each took before they found success.

  • And the most urgent question of all...why they are both leaning against brick walls in their author photos.

The evening should be a blast. The last time the two authors shared an event, they ended the night with BAD REVIEWS––a hilarious back-and-forth where they read bad reviews of each other's books. Check it out below.
