The latest addition to the Erica Donato mystery series is due out in December. Join us as local favorite Triss Stein tells us about her newest history mystery! 

Murder strikes the neighborhoods of Brooklyn―the hip, the historic, and the hood. The search for a lost portrait of Brooklyn's own genius Walt Whitman sends urban historian Dr. Erica Donato into Brooklyn Heights, a neighborhood of quaint and charming streets, family names out of history, and spectacular views of the harbor and the world-famous bridge. New York's first suburb has long weathered political battles about neighborhood preservation and destruction. Is a new one shaping up? Find out...

Triss Stein digs into the archives to research her richly historical books, and will share with us her process, discoveries, and answer questions during a Q&A.  

About the Author: 

Triss Stein is a small-town girl who has spent most of her adult life living and working in New York City. This gives her the useful double vision of a stranger and a resident which she uses to write mysteries about Brooklyn, her ever-fascinating, ever-changing, ever-challenging adopted home. Brooklyn Legacies is the fifth Erica Donato mystery, following Brooklyn Bones, Brooklyn Graves, Brooklyn Secrets, and Brooklyn Wars.

Reception starting at 6:30pm. Discussion will begin promptly at 7pm.
