Nita Prose, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of "The Maid"

Dec 06, 2023

Join us in a conversation with #1 New York Times bestselling author Nita Prose, whose debut novel The Maid sold an astonishing million copies and was published in more than forty countries. A #1 Good Morning America Book Club Pick, The Maid is at once a clever crime mystery and a compelling character study of Molly Gray, aka Molly the Maid, who finds joy in cleaning rooms to perfection, but is confounded by the messiness of human interactions. Nita is here to talk about The Mystery Guest, a new mystery and a new mess. Molly has been promoted to the top position of Head Maid at the glorious five-star Regency Grand Hotel, but her world is suddenly turned upside down when a world-renowned mystery author drops dead—very dead—on the hotel’s tea room floor. It’s up to Molly the Maid to uncover the truth, no matter how dirty.

Guest Host is Brittany Cavallaro, the New York Times bestselling author of A Study in Charlotte, a young adult novel, and the interim creative writing director at Interlochen Arts Academy.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with live music and a cash bar.

The event begins at 7 p.m. and includes a Q and A and author signing.
