We’ve rescheduled Hank’s visit for Monday, December 17th at 6:30 p.m.! Register HERE to save your spot for this limited seating event at the Amesbury Public Library!
Hank will talk about mixing the worlds of fact and fiction–her career that goes from radio reporter to Rolling Stone Magazine to the US Senate to undercover investigations– the obstacles and the rewards, the challenges as a newbie reporter in 1971, as well as the challenges of an experienced senior reporter when the focus is on youth and beauty. The craziness, the fun–and how she ended up where she is at age 61. She’ll also talk about making a career change at mid-life–can it really work to follow your dreams?
Hank’s first novel PRIME TIME won the Agatha for Best First mystery, AIR TIME (2009) was nominated for the Agatha and Anthony and her newest (and fourth) DRIVE TIME received a starred review from Library Journal and is an Anthony and Agatha nominee. Hank will have the scoop on mysteries, television, and the mystery of television.
