The Week Ahead


Skype the author

Wendy Tyson is an author, lawyer, and former therapist, whose background has inspired her mysteries and thrillers like her fourth novel Rooted in Deceit: A Greenhouse Mystery. Come to the East Meadow Public Library on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. to Skype with Tyson about the novel at the library’s “Cozy Murder” reception. Lively characters, a charming setting, red herrings galore, and a satisfying denouement make this entry a winner.
