Author tour: Karin Slaughter to visit in August

One of the world's most popular crime writers is visiting New Zealand shores in August, with Atlanta-based author Karin Slaughter scheduled to appear at library events in Auckland and Wellington. It's a great opportunity for keen crime readers to meet the author of the Grant County and Will Trent series of thrillers. Those books, along with her other stories, have sold more than 30 million copies around the world, topped bestseller lists in several countries, and been translated into more than 30 languages.

Slaughter (her real name) kickstarted her career with BLINDSIGHTED, a superb debut that introduced paediatrician and part-time coroner Dr Sara Linton. That book was nominated for several prestigious prizes: a CWA Dagger, the Barry, and the Macavity awards.

I understand that this will be Slaughter's first visit to New Zealand. You can meet her at the following events:

Monday 11 August 2014 at 5.30pm
Auckland Central Library, Level 2
Lorne Street, Auckland
free entry

Tuesday 12 August 2014 at
Wellington City Library, Ground Floor
65 Victoria Street, Wellington
free entry

What a terrific opportunity to meet a fabulous author. Hope plenty of readers head along.
