Louise Penny

Tuesday, September 27 · 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm 

“Hearts are broken,” Lillian Dyson carefully underlined in a book. “Sweet relationships are dead.” But now Lillian herself is dead.   

Chief Inspector Gamache is called to the tiny Quebec village, where he finds the art world gathered, a world of shading and nuance, a world of shadow and light.  
Where nothing is as it seems.   

Louise Penny will be at McNally's, reading and signing copies of all her catalogue.  

Louise won the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards for her first novel, Still Life, which was also named one of five Mystery/Crime Novels of the Decade by Deadly Pleasures.   She also won the Agatha Award three years in a row, as well as the Anthony Award for the Best Crime Novel for The Brutal Telling and a second Dilys Award for Bury Your Dead.  
A Rule Against Murder, The Brutal Telling, and Bury Your Dead were all New York Times bestsellers.   

A former Winnipeg resident where she hosted a popular CBC afternoon show, Louise now lives in a small village south of Montreal.
