Dennis Lehane to Speak at Forsyth Reads Together 2016
Published in 2001, Mystic River revolves around three characters who grew up as friends in Boston — Dave Boyle, Sean Devine, and Jimmy Marcus. Sean Devine must confront the world of violence and pain he tried to forget when his childhood friend's daughter is murdered, and the investigation brings him face-to-face with a vigilante killer and a man with a dangerous secret.
This suspenseful and wrenching novel became a #1 New York Times bestseller and received numerous awards and distinctions, including being a finalist for the PEN/Winship Award, winner of the Anthony Award and the Barry Award for Best Novel, the Massachusetts Book Award in Fiction, and France's Prix Mystère de la Critique.
FCPL will welcome Mr. Lehane for an author talk and book signing on Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at the Forsyth Conference Center. Registration details will follow.
