Internationally bestselling author Karin Slaughter will visit the Main Library (in the Atrium Reading Garden Lounge) on Sunday, July 15 at 2:00 p.m. With millions of copies of her books in print worldwide, this thriller/crime fiction author has wowed readers and critics alike with the gritty forensic detailing, all-too-human characters, and stark rendering of crime found in her lacerating thrillers.
Widely credited with first coining the term “investigoogling,” Ms. Slaughter’s first novel, Blindsighted, became an international success, was published in 30 languages, and made the Crime Writers’ Association’s Dagger Award shortlist for “Best Thriller Debut” of 2001. Fractured, her second novel in the Will Trent series, and Faithless in the Grant County series, which published in Germany at number one, also realized similar success. Criminal, her newest novel, will be released this summer.
Ms. Slaughter was born in southern Georgia and now resides in Atlanta. She is an advocate for libraries and is the founder of the Save The Libraries project.
