A Thrilling Conversation with the New Queens of Crime Kate Brody and Joanna Margaret
Let's talk thrillers and crime! Join us in welcoming two new authors in the thriller genre, Kate Brody and Joanna Margaret, to discuss Brody's new book, The Rabbit Hole. Described as a 'twisty debut,' The Rabbit Hole explores the dark side of true crime fandom and the blurry lines of female friendship and guarantees a nail-biting, edge-of-seat reading experience.
About the Authors: Kate Brody holds an MFA from NYU, and her work has previously appeared (or is forthcoming in) The New York Times, The Guardian, The Rumpus, The Literary Review, Literary Hub, Electric Lit, CrimeReads, Write or Die, Noema, and other magazines. She is originally from New Jersey and now lives in Los Angeles with her family.
Joanna Margaret is an art historian whose previous writing and scholarly work has focused on Florentine aristocrats in 16th-century France. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews and an MFA from NYU, where Joyce Carol Oates served as her thesis advisor. The Bequest is her first novel.
