Special Event @ The Jenks: An Inside Look at Fiction, Journalism, and the Mysteries of Both!!! with Hank Phillippi Ryan
November 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
How does an Emmy winning reporter become a USA Today best-selling author of fast-paced murder mysteries? And how does a just-the-facts journalist add mystery fiction to her resume – and juggle being a reporter, an author, a wife and a grandmother? Hank has managed to mix the worlds of fact and fiction – in an amazing career from radio reporter to Rolling Stone Magazine to undercover investigations at Boston’s WHDH-TV. She’ll discuss the obstacles and challenges of a newbie in 1971, as well as the risks and rewards of an experienced senior reporter. The craziness, the fun, the stress-and how she ended up where she is at age 71. Now an author of 13 novels, national reviews have called her “a superb and gifted storyteller.” Hank’s novels have been named Best Thrillers of the Year by Library Journal, New York Post, BOOK BUB, Popsugar, Real Simple Magazine and others. Hank’s current book is HER PERFECT LIFE, a chilling psychological standalone about fame, family and revenge.
