Author Dinner

Kathryn Casey

The Brazoria County Library System Foundation presents its 11th annual Evening with the Author on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 featuring Kathryn Casey, mystery novelist and true crime author, speaking about her book, Shattered.

Kathryn Casey started as a journalist whose articles often examined sensational crime. Her list of accomplishments includes writing both mystery fiction and non-fiction, concentrating on Texas cases. Her book, Deliver Us, is based on the Texas killing fields and Interstate 45 murders. She has also written on the stiletto murder, and the Kaufman County prosecutor murders. With renewed interest in the David Temple case and the reopening of his trial, her book about the case, Shattered, should be of great interest to our audience.

In March 2014, Elie Magazine included Casey along with Agatha Christie, Jane Smiley, Edna Buchanan, Joyce Carol Oates, Gillian Flynn, Ann Rule and others, in a list of "The Ten Best Thrillers and Crime Writing by Women." Author Ann Rule called her "one of the best in the true crime genre." She will have copies of Shattered and some of her other books available for purchase and signing.

The dinner will be at 6 p.m. at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds Auditorium in Angleton, Texas. Tickets for the dinner will be $45 per person and includes dinner. Tickets can be purchased from any Foundation board member, your branch library or by calling the Library Administration office at 979-864-1505.

Proceeds from the dinner and auction will be used to fund a library subscription to Creativebug, a site for people interested in arts and crafts, which includes classes, videos, downloadable templates and inspiration.

Library patrons can access the help of Creativebug from home or in the library. Creativebug and the arts and crafts MakerSpaces at several branches funded with proceeds of previous author dinners will bring out the inner artist in all of us! Event sponsorships are available. There will be a silent auction of book-themed gift baskets assembled by the Friends of the Library groups that support each of the 12 branch libraries.
