Reader Meet Writer - New Virtual Events

Tuesday, June 9th


Our next author in the Okra Pick series is Beverly Bell.  Beverly will be talking with us about her book,  The Murder of Marion Miley and answering your questions.  Beverly is one of many authors we’ll be bringing to your living room.

Beverly Bell is an award-winning magazine and crime writer whose work has appeared in Arizona HighwaysIndianapolis MonthlyKeeneland Magazine, and Kentucky Monthly. Bell is also a featured consultant in Kentucky Education Television's recent documentary Forgotten Fame: The Marion Miley Story

"In The Murder of Marion Miley, author Beverly Bell takes literary crime-writing to new heights. Unearthing the remains of an actual 80-year-old crime -- the murder of a world-class golfer in her prime -- Bell creates a lyrical, page-turning novel about chance, class, and the strains of family bonds. Set in Kentucky's Bluegrass region in the weeks before and after Pearl Harbor, Bell's book recounts the crime while plunging us into the minds of an assortment of American characters of the 1940s. From its riveting opening scene, The Murder of Marion Miley is story-telling excellence."

-- Neil Chethik, author of FatherLoss: How Sons of All Ages Come to Terms With the Deaths of Their Dads
