Benn, author of Solemn Graves, the latest in the Billy Boyle World War II series; and Marie Benedict, author of Carnegie’s Maid and The Other Einstein. The authors will be in conversation with Emily Fine and Chris Wolak of The Book Cougars.

I’m happy to say I’ve enjoyed or am enjoying all of the books. Can you imagine what a drag it would be if I’d hated any of the books? I’m not that good of an actor.

So far I’ve read Carnegie’s Maid (audio) and Solemn Graves (paper). I’ll be finishing the audio version of The Scribe of Sienna later today and started The Masterpiece (paper) yesterday. I have paper copies of all four novels but chose to listen to two. I did this in part because I need the exercise (or at least to help my blood to circulate) and can listen easier than reading on the treadmill (although I often do find myself reading paper books on the treadmill, but at a much slower pace. Talk about blood).

Initially, it was a subconscious decision to chose to listen to the two books that are performed with accents, and in hindsight, that choice made perfect sense. More to come on that. I’ll review each book in the coming weeks.

If you attend this event please stop by and say hi afterward! Emily and I will hang out to chat while the authors sign books.



    • I listened to Carnegie’s Maid and it was an excellent audiobook — loved the Irish and Scottish accents.
