Charles Finch is Featured Author!
A Magical Mystery Tea is the tagline for the 2019 Assistance League Authors Brunch! Don your finest millinery (or haberdashery) and tighten up your bustle for the occasion, as the featured speaker, Charles Finch, will take you back to the Victorian days of mid-19th Century England! Author of 11 murder-mystery novels set in this era, Mr. Finch is a master at recreating the atmosphere of that time while keeping his reader perplexed in attempting to figure out “who done it!”
Charles Finch, born in 1980 in New York, received an undergraduate degree from Yale University and a Masters degree from Oxford. In 2011, he married Emily Popp, daughter of Assistance League member Linda Popp. Charles has received many honors for his expertise in writing, including the Nona Balakian citation from The National Book Critics Circle in 2017, Agatha Awards, Nero Award, 2017 NBCC Awards, and others. His reviews and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and other publications.
Authors Brunch 2019 is from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at the Edward Jones Atrium in Des Peres. Reservations are due by March 22.
