Laura Lippman specializes in thrillers about resourceful and intelligent women.
The best-selling author discusses her latest such book, And When She Was Good, on Monday, February 25, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Her presentation is part of While the City Sleeps, this year's adult Winter Reading Program.
Lippman was a reporter for 12 years at The Baltimore Sun, home of her "accidental private eye" Tess Monaghan. She began writing the Monaghan series while still at the paper; she left daily journalism in 2001.
Lippman has won almost every award in the crime fiction field: the Edgar, the Anthony, the Agatha, the Shamus, the Nero Wolfe, Gumshoe, and Barry awards.
