Old Lyme bestseller Luanne Rice closes Ct. Author Trail with appearance at Mohegan Sun
Let's say you'd attended each of the 2019 Connecticut Author's Trail events. And let's say you wrote, oh, five pages in a fictional project of your own for each one of those many events. By the time the Trail ends Wednesday at the Mohegan Sun Cabaret — with an appearance by Old Lyme resident and New York Times multiple-bestselling superstar Luanne Rice — you'd have written your OWN book.
And maybe next year YOU'D be on the Author's Trail!
Meanwhile, this Rice thing is not to be missed. For one thing, the witty and always-charming writer will discuss her most recent title, the YA novel "Pretend She's Not Here," which is a creepy but heartbreaking story of the extremes that one can go to as an extention of familial grief.
But there's also big news: Rice just might broach her next book — which will be called "Last Day" and, in addition to being a return to adult fiction for the author, it's also a dark mystery about murder, family and a stolen famous painting. Advance comments from the likes of Lee Child, Tess Geritsone, Lisa Unger and Lisa Scottoline are all incredibly positive.
If the Trail must indeed come to an end, this is a helluva good way to say adieu.
Luanne Rice, Connecticut Author's Trail, 6:15 p.m. Wednesday, Mohegan Sun Cabaret; free; (860) 536-3795.
