Flesh and BloodPatricia Cornwell – Flesh and Blood: A Scarpetta Novel

Saturday, November 15, 7 p.m.
Ethical Society of St. Louis
9001 Clayton Road

Lecture, Q&A, and Book Signing
Tickets: fleshandblood.brownpapertickets.com

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers the next enthralling thriller in her high-stakes series starring Kay Scarpetta—a complex tale involving a serial sniper who strikes chillingly close to the forensic sleuth herself. The victims appear to have had nothing in common, and there is no pattern to indicate where the killer will strike next. First New Jersey, then Massachusetts, and then the murky depths off the coast of South Florida, where Scarpetta investigates a shipwreck, looking for answers that only she can discover and analyze. And it is there that she comes face to face with shocking evidence that implicates her techno genius niece, Lucy, Scarpetta’s own flesh and blood.


Andy Cohen DiariesAndy Cohen – The Andy Cohen Diaries

Tuesday, November 25, 7 p.m.
Skip Viragh Center for the Arts
Chaminade College Preparatory School

Lecture, Q&A, and Book Signing
Tickets: andycohen.brownpapertickets.com

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books presents Bravo executive producer Andy Cohen, who will discuss his new memoir.

$30 admits one and includes one copy of The Andy Cohen Diaries. $35 admits two, includes one copy of The Andy Cohen Diaries and $5 is rebatable towards the purchase of a second copy Cohen’s book.

As a TV producer and host of the smash-hit late night show “Watch What Happens Live,” Andy Cohen has a front row seat to an exciting world not many get to see. In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with “Real Housewives,” makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog.
