About the Event:
The next Sackett Street Writers’ Reading Series event, “Dangerous Lives of Young Women in Fiction,” celebrates the paperback release of The Unraveling of Mercy Louis, the second novel by SSWW alum Keija Parssinen.
The Unraveling of Mercy Louis won a 2015 Alex Award from the American Library Association.
Joining Keija are four authors whose novels illuminate the complexity of young women’s experience in an often violent world — New York Times Bestselling novelists Miranda Beverly-Whittemore (Bittersweet and the forthcoming June), Kimberly McCreight (Reconstructing Amelia, Where They Found Her, and the forthcoming YA series Outliers) and Robin Wasserman (author of more than 10 novels and the forthcoming Girls On Fire); and National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 honoree Tracy O’Neill, a SSWW alum and author ofThe Hopeful.
