Special Guest Kathie Bergquist
With her life as a private investigator in Chicago firmly established, Jan Roberts can often forget where she came from—a backwoods survivalist camp run by her paranoid, dictatorial father. After risking her life at sixteen to escape the camp, she finds it hard to understand the runaway teenager she’s been hired to find. She pursues the girl into the deep woods of Idaho, in a journey that becomes a personal heart of darkness, where her past can no longer be contained. Laughlin is the author of the Goldie Award–winning mystery Veritas and is a 2008 Lambda Emerging Writers Fellow.
Joining her will be writer (and Women & Children First publicist) Kathie Bergquist, a sister 2008 Lambda fellow and adjunct faculty in the Fiction Writing Department of Columbia College Chicago.
