Program Description

Event Details

In Esquire's round-up of 2018 debuts, Christine Mangan's title Tangerine (March 2018) is "the thriller that everyone will be talking about this spring ... a sinuous, Hitchcockian tale that disorients in the best way." A chilling and unexpected portrait of a female friendship set in Tangier, film rights for Tangerine have already been optioned with Scarlett Johansson in a starring role. The story revolves around Alice Shipley, newly arrived in Morocco and quite afraid of her new surroundings, and the sudden appearance of her former Bennington College classmate Lucy Mason. Lucy claims to be many things, but most certainly, she is Alice's worst nightmare. Join us on February 10, 11 a.m.-noon, to meet author Christine Mangan (PhD in English, University College Dublin; MFA in fiction, University of Southern Maine) and discuss the influence of Gothic literature in her writing, researching 1950s Tangier, and her writing process. A limited number of advanced reading copies will be available. Attendees may also pre-order from the BookBar and receive a signed bookplate.
