T. M. Dunn, Wendy Whitman and Deborah Levison, authors of page-turning thrillers full of twists and turns, will discuss their books, each inspired by shocking headlines that grip the nation. The discussion, to be moderated by Dunn, will include shared key elements of the authors' writing lives and tips about getting published.

Reception at 6 p.m.; program to follow at 6:30 p.m.

Book sale and signing by Elm Street Books.

T. M. Dunn (a.k.a. Patricia Dunn) is the author of the thriller Her Father's Daughter as well as Rebels by Accident and Last Stop on the 6. Dunn served as Senior Director of the Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College, where she holds an MFA in creative writing. She coaches aspiring and established writers, and teaches creative writing workshops. She is a co-founder of Key to the Castle Workshop; co-host of the Westport Library's podcast, Go Ahead, Write Something!; and co-chair of programming for Sisters in Crime CT.

Dunn lives in Stamford, where she is currently working on her next novel, with her rescue puppy Blanqui snuggled by her side.

Wendy Whitman is the other of two crime thrillers: Premonition and the sequel, Retribution. Before becoming a published author, she was a longtime executive and producer/reporter for Court TV and the Nancy Grace show at CNN Headline News (now HLN), covering many major high-profile murder cases in the U.S. She received three Telly Awards and two GLAAD nominations during her tenure at Court TV. She graduated from the Boston University School of Law.

Deborah Levison is the author of the novel A Nest of Snakes, a part-thriller and part-courtroom drama loosely based on a spate of lawsuits in which adult men accused their elite private schools of abuses that shocked the nation. She also wrote The Crate: A Story Of War, A Murder, And Justice, a true crime story that won seven literary awards.

Levison grew up in Canada, where she attended the University of Toronto and the Royal Conservatory of Music. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, three children and two doodles.
