Happy Hour with Lynn C. Miller | The Unmasking

Happy Hour with Lynn C. Miller | The Unmasking

Online

Be a part of a live, interactive conversation with author and performer Lynn C. Miller to discuss her latest novel, The Unmasking.

Best friends Bettina, Miriam, and Fiona are shocked when their dean of liberal studies dies in a single-car accident amid accusations of mishandling university funds. They suspect murder, especially after learning that the dean’s estranged wife will inherit three million dollars. Events take a surprising turn when they travel from Austin, Texas, to a Chautauqua performance in Silver City, New Mexico, where they join several others, some with questionable motives, including the dean’s wife and her lover. In the close confines of the lodge, the group brings to life remarkable women from history—including Victoria Woodhull, Gertrude Stein, Edith Wharton, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and Virginia Woolf. But when one woman is kidnapped and another disappears, the friends’ lives are forever changed as they realize that the masks we wear often hide chilling truths.

The Unmasking is Lynn C. Miller’s fourth novel. Her third novel, The Day After Death, was nominated for a 2017 Lambda Literary Award. Prior published novels are The Fool’s Journey and Death of a Department Chair. Co-author of Find Your Story, Write Your Memoir, Miller has performed and directed the work of women writers including Gertrude Stein, Edith Wharton, and Katherine Anne Porter. A former professor of Theater and Dance at the University of Texas at Austin, she is co-publisher of Bosque Press and lives in Albuquerque, NM.
