"Off the Page: A Morning with Charles Todd" at the Hockessin Public Library

Saturday, February 26
11:00 am

New York Times best-selling authors
Delaware- and North Carolina-based, mother-son writing team

Caroline and Charles Todd (writing as Charles Todd) will appear in Hockessin to talk about their work and sign copies of their newest book, A Lonely Death.

A Lonely Death, released in January, is the 13th book in the Todds' Ian Rutledge mystery series. The novel explores the effects of bullying and how the results of constant harassment can lead to the ultimate revenge. The New York Times Book Review wrote, "The tragic sweep of Charles Todd's historical mysteries grows more expansive with each successive novel in his stunning series."

Seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis.

Books by the authors will be available for sale.
