Baltimore; summer 1966. Tensions between white and black residents. Some women testing expectations. And then: a woman’s decomposed body turns up in Druid Hill Park lake. Laura Lippman latest novel, "The Lady in the Lake," unscrambles multiple mysteries.
A week from tonight, Sept. 9, at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company Theater, Lippman will speak to the Women’s Daily Post about the novel, followed by discussion, and then a panel of women describing the paths they’ve taken to becoming published authors.
The following Saturday, Sept. 14, as part of the Pratt’s Grand Re-Opening Celebration, Lippman will be in conversation with another newspaper-writer-turned-novelist, Sujata Massey, at Wheeler Auditorium.
