JESSICA STRAWSER INTRODUCES NEW NOVEL


WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6; 7 PM

JESSICA STRAWSER
will introduce her new book, FORGET YOU KNOW ME. In it, we meet Molly and Liza, extremely close friends. When Molly married Daniel and moved away, the women’s friendship faltered. Molly and Liza plan to reconnect with a nice long video chat when Daniel is away on business. While they are chatting, Molly needs to leave the room to check on a crying baby and suddenly a man in a mask enters the room, throwing Liza into a panic—then her screen goes black. Who is the man and what is he doing at her friend’s home?

FORGET YOU KNOW ME
exposes the wounds of people who’ve grown apart, against their will. Best friends separated by miles. Spouses hardened by neglect. A mother isolated by pain. The man in the mask will change things for them all. But who is he? And will he be back?

Jessica Strawser
has also written Not That I Could Tell and Almost Missed You and is editor-at-large for Writer’s Digest. During the program, she will be "in conversation" with local author Sharon Short. Sharon has just published a new book, The Widows, under the pen name Jess Montgomery.
