OCTOBER 22: Sergei Lobanov-Rostovsky, Professor of English at Kenyon College, will lead a book discussion featuring the 2014 Knox Reads selection, "State of Wonder," by Author Ann Patchett at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, on Wednesday, October 22, 7:00 p.m. Ann Patchett has dazzled readers with her award-winning books, including The Magician’s Assistant and the New York Times bestselling Bel Canto. Now she raises the bar with State of Wonder, a provocative and ambitious novel set deep in the Amazon jungle. Dr. Marina Singh, a research scientist with a Minnesota pharmaceutical company, is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have all but disappeared in the Amazon while working on what is destined to be an extremely valuable new drug, the development of which has already cost the company a fortune. Nothing about Marina’s assignment is easy: not only does no one know where Dr. Swenson is, but the last person who was sent to find her, Marina’s research partner Anders Eckman, died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding her former mentor as well as answers to several troubling questions about her friend’s death, the state of her company’s future, and her own past. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Patchett has been selected as the 2014 Kenyon Literary Festival honoree and will speak at Rosse Hall on Saturday, October 25, 8:00 p.m. Copies of the book are available at the library or may be purchased at any area bookstore. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net. / “What doesn’t kill you will make you wish it did,” gives readers a little insight into what Author T. Michelle Nelson is all about—and explains why her fans thirst for another infusion from her latest paranormal thriller. On Wednesday, October 22, noon, Nelson will share her inspiration and some of her creative secrets behind her writing success for a Brown Bag Chat at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. In her paranormal romance novels, Nelson created a vampire fiction heroine like no other in the “Life and Death of Lily Drake,” “’Til Death Do Us Part,” and in her latest release, “Death Warmed Over.” With a writing style described as “quick, sarcastic and funny” while still keeping readers breathlessly gripping the sides of their chairs as a “sugar-coated ending” might just turn into a “blood-dripping” one. What does the future hold for the paranormal fiction genre and where do her bold characters go from here? And how did she come to use Mount Vernon as a backdrop for her latest series? Find out at the program and bring your own questions. Free and open to the public. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch. Beverages and refreshments provided. Books will be available for purchase and autographs following the presentation. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.
