VIDEO: Wilmington Library Hosts Bestselling Authors Tess Gerritsen, Gary Braver & BA Shapiro

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Memorial Library, along with several other local libraries, recently held a virtual Zoom discussion with bestselling authors Tess Gerritsen and Gary Braver for a discussion of their new suspenseful thriller, “Choose Me,” in conversation with bestselling author B.A. Shapiro.

International bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career: it wasn’t until she was on maternity leave from her job as a physician that she began to write. Since then, she’s written twenty-eight suspense novels, with more than thirty million copies sold. Her books have been translated into forty languages, and her series featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TNT television series Rizzoli & Isles, starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. Gerritsen now writes full-time and lives in Maine.

Gary Braver — pen name of college professor Gary Goshgarian — is the bestselling author of eight critically acclaimed mysteries and thrillers, including “Gray Matter” and” Flashback,” the first thriller to win the Massachusetts Book Award. His work has been translated into several languages; two have been optioned for film, including “Elixir.” As Gary Goshgarian, he teaches science fiction, horror fiction, bestsellers, and fiction writing at Northeastern University. He lives with his family outside Boston.

B.A. Shapiro is the New York Times bestselling author of eight novels including” The Art Forger,” “The Muralist” and “The Collector’s Apprentice.” Her ninth novel, “Metropolis,” will be released Spring 2022. She splits her time between Boston and Naples, Florida.

A psychological thriller, a whodunit, and a police procedural, complicated with multiple points of view, “Choose Me” will delight both longtime fans of these celebrated authors and brand-new readers. It’s the story of an affair that leads to murder — but from both the male and female perspectives.
