Author Visit & Book Signing with Lou Berney – The Long and Faraway Gone: A NovelMay 11, 2017
Join us for an intimate visit and book signing with Lou Berney, author of The Long and Faraway Gone: A Novel. In August of 1986, six employees of a movie theater in Oklahoma City were brutally murdered during an armed robbery. A month later, a teenage girl vanished from the Oklahoma State Fair. Neither crime was ever solved. A quarter of century later, the tragedies continue to echo through the lives of two survivors. Winner of the 2016 Edgar Award for Best Paperback Original, and winner of the Barry, Anthony, and Macavity awards, this mystery/thriller is a title you will not be able to put down. Lou Berney is the two-time Edgar-nominated author of The Long and Far Away Gone, Whiplash River, and Gutshot Straight. He's also the author of a collection of stories, The Road to Bobby Joe, and his short fiction has appeared in publications such as The New Yorker, Ploughshares, and the Pushcart Prize anthology. He's written feature screenplays and created television pilots for, among others, Warner Brothers, Paramount, Focus Features, ABC, and Fox. He teaches in the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University. Copies of the Long and Faraway Gone will be available for sale and signing at the event.
