STEPHEN CHBOSKY, ROBYN HARDING, NATHAN RIPLEY
Moderator: Robert Wiersema
Masters of shock and suspense share their secrets for creating "unputdownable" thrillers and spine-tinglers, a conversation that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
Is there a word for that terrifying suspense that leaves you unable to do anything but turn the page? “Unputdownable” is what #1 NYT Bestseller R.J. Palacio said of Stephen Chbosky’s Imaginary Friend. Already this fearsome, ambitious novel from the author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower is poised to become another cult classic. Nathan Ripley became a favourite thriller name with his debut, Find You in the Dark. A story of gun violence and radicalization, Your Life Is Mine is his second chilling work. And Robyn Harding shares yet another bestselling spine-tingler: The Arrangement, one that quickly goes wrong when the protagonist’s older lover is brutally murdered. Enjoy hearing about craft and cruelty from these “unputdownables.”
