Mariah Fredericks, author of The Lindbergh Nanny, returns to celebrate her new book, The Wharton Plot. Join us for this in-person, moderated conversation.

Superb…Fredericks hits this one out of the park.”―Library Journal (Starred Review)

“[A] dazzling, magical foray into the life of Edith Wharton… Sure to be one of the best books of the year, and a perfect choice for book groups.”―First Clue (Book of the Week)

About this book: New York City, 1911. Edith Wharton, almost equally famed for her novels and her sharp tongue, is at a crossroads with both her marriage and her writing. When dashing novelist David Graham Phillips is shot to death outside the Princeton Club, Edith is asked to champion his final novel, a scandalous tale of a woman who makes her own way. Edith thought the author obnoxious, the novel preachy. Still, she is curious: what kind of book would inspire someone to kill?

Mariah Fredericks was born, raised, and still lives in New York City. She graduated from Vassar College with a degree in history. She is the author of the Jane Prescott mystery series, which has twice been nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, as well as several YA novels. She can be reached through her website, www.mariahfredericksbooks.com

Program sponsored by the Friends of the Avon Library.
