Lisa Unger event June 8 at Carter Woodson St. Petersburg

Want to meet Clearwater-based novelist Lisa Unger?
Even better, want to know her secrets and write like Lisa Unger?

You have a chance to do both tonight at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum on the Deuces in St. Petersburg. Unger, a New York Times bestseller suspense novelist (and one of the nicest people we know on Twitter), will talk about her craft with Alsace Walentine, owner of Tombolo Books. One of the topics? Unger's favorite books about her craft.

Earlier this week CL published its review of Unger's forthcoming Under My Skin (available Oct. 2), but no worries — she has 16 others, and if Walentine understands capitalism (we suspect that she does), she'll likely have at least one or two for sale at the event.

Other than buying a book — if you so choose, obvs — this is a free event, but the organizers ask that you pre-register


Lisa Unger reception and pop-up shop with Tombolo Books, Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum, 2240 9th Ave. S., St. Petersburg | June 8: 6-8 p.m.; 6:30 p.m., discussion followed by a book signing.
