IN-PERSON: Lisa Jewell with Hank Phillippi Ryan

We're delighted to welcome thriller queen Lisa Jewell to introduce her new novel, THE FAMILY REMAINS, in conversation with USA Today bestselling author, Hank Phillippi Ryan. THE FAMILY REMAINS is a sequel to Jewell's GMA Book Club Pick/New York Times bestseller THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS, yet can absolutely be read as a standalone. Lisa puts it best that “it’s a story about a broken family trying to piece itself back together in the aftermath of a shocking reunion, unaware that they are in the encroaching shadow of a detective who has evidence about their pasts that could blow them all to smithereens again.” How can you resist? Following the discussion, they will answer questions, and sign copies of their books.
