Laura Lippman's I'd Know You Anywhere (Literary Sojourn Author Study Series)
Eliza Benedict cherishes her peaceful, ordinary suburban life with her successful husband and children, thirteen-year-old Iso and eight-year-old Albie. But her tranquility is shattered when she receives a letter from the last person she ever expects—or wants—to hear from: Walter Bowman.
"There was your photo, in a magazine. Of course, you are older now. Still, I'd know you anywhere."
In the summer of 1985, when she was fifteen, Eliza was kidnapped by Walter and held hostage for almost six weeks. He had killed at least one girl and Eliza always suspected he had other victims as well. Now on death row in Virginia for the rape and murder of his final victim, Walter seems to be making a heartfelt act of contrition as his execution nears.
Laura Lippman is a featured author at Literary Sojourn, Steamboat Springs' 20th annual festival of authors, which is sponsored by the Bud Werner Memorial Library. Jordan will be joined by fellow authors Hillary Jordan, Jonathan Lethem, Tom Perrota, Kathryn Harrison and Master of Ceremonies Andrew Sean Greer
