Paris Mystery with Barbara Corrado Pope

Longtime Alliance member Barbara Corrado Pope will read from her newly released novel, The Missing Italian Girl: A Mystery in Paris, on Friday, June 7, at 6 p.m. at the Alliance Française’s Kamm House.

Pope is the author of three historical novels set in late-19th-century France. Long an admirer of a variety of European mystery writers like Simenon, LeCarre, Pears and Mankell, she strives to meld her love and knowledge of the past with the page-turning styles of these masters.

Her first novel, Cezanne’s Quarry, was nominated for an Oregon Book Award; her second, The Blood of Lorraine, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Her third, The Missing Italian Girl, won recognition on Oprah.com as one of the “Best Mystery Books: 7 Compulsively Readable Mysteries (for the Crazy-Smart Reader).”

The book reading on Friday, June 7, 6 p.m. is free for Alliance members and $5 for non-members. Sorry, this event is sold out. Sometimes we are able to get folks in from a waitlist. Click here to add your name to the waitlist.
