An Intimate Evening Salon with Megan Abbott and Jonathan Santlofer on Crime Fiction

Join The Center for Fiction for an intimate evening with two acclaimed authors of crime fiction—Megan Abbott and Jonathan Santlofer. Abbott is an Edgar award-winning author of electrifying crime novels including The Turnout, Give Me Your Hand, and You Will Know Me. She is known for skillfully subverting and updating the genre by writing from a unique female perspective. Her latest work is the eerie Beware the Woman, which was named one of the best books of 2023 by NPR, the PBS NewsHour, the Guardian, and more. Santlofer is the Nero Award-winning author of numerous suspenseful thrillers, including The Last Mona Lisa, Anatomy of Fear, and the international bestseller The Death Artist. Known for his impeccably plotted mysteries, Santlofer’s latest work, The Last Van Gogh, is an electric tale about the search for the titular artist’s final self-portrait. The two authors will have a rousing conversation about the craft of crime fiction and answer questions from the audience about their work. The cozy, relaxed setting of The Center for Fiction’s Members Lounge is the perfect venue to engage with these two accomplished writers.
