Writers LIVE: Mark Bowden

May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE series, we welcome Mark Bowden, discussing his latest book, The Last Stone Mark Bowden is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down.  He will be in conversation with Dan Fesperman, an award winning author and former foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. His latest novel is Safe Houses.
For forty years the mystery of what happened to the Lyons sisters, aged 10 and 12, who disappeared in 1975 from the Wheaton Plaza shopping mall in suburban Washington, D.C, haunted an entire community, including journalist Mark Bowden, who covered the story as a cub reporter. With The Last Stone, he now returns to the crime to cover the extraordinary effort by authorities to bring their kidnapper to justice and to try to answer the question he could never shake, “Who would commit such a crime? And, why?”
