National Writers Series: An evening with Karen Dionne and Brad Thor

Sep 13, 2020

Does the Upper Peninsula of Michigan seem creepy to you? You might think so after reading Karen Dionne’s novels. Her latest two psychological thrillers are set in the U.P., and a third one is in the works. Karen’s best known for her novel “The Marsh King’s Daughter,” which has been translated into 25 languages. Her latest book is “The Wicked Sister.” Karen appeared at a virtual National Writers Series event and spoke with Cynthia Canty, former host of Michigan Public Radio’s Stateside. In the second half of the program, we'll hear from Brad Thor. Brad calls his novels “faction.” He does meticulous research to add real-life details to his books, so you can’t tell where the fact ends and the fiction begins. Brad has written twenty thrillers. His latest is “Near Dark.” Brad talked with Doug Stanton during a virtual National Writers Series event.
