Steve Hamilton returns to Bayliss Public Library
One of the U.P.’s favorite authors—Steve Hamilton—will make a return visit to Bayliss Public Library on Friday, May 19 at 7 p.m.
He will be on tour for Exit Strategy, the second book in his Nick Mason series that will be released a few days prior to the event. The action-packed crime thriller follows Nick Mason on his next mission set in the Appalachians and in New York City.
Steve Hamilton is one of the most acclaimed mystery writers in the world, and one of only two authors to win Mystery Writers of America Edgar Awards for both Best First Novel and Best Novel. His Alex McKnight series includes two New York Times notable books, and he has had two recent titles on the New York Times bestseller list. Steve has either won or received multiple nominations for virtually every other crime fiction award in the business.
The Sault’s Book World store is providing copies of Exit Strategy in hard cover and The Second Life of Nick Mason in paperback for purchase and signing at the event. The latter novel came out in 2016 and is the first in Steve’s new series; it is just out in paperback.
Come to the library event and find out when Steve will be returning to his Alex McKnight series set in the U.P. and the latest on his movie deal. For more information about the author, check http://authorstevehamilton.com.
The event is on a Friday night when the library is not usually open, so please enter by the front door. The Friends of Bayliss Library will provide refreshments.
Bayliss Public Library, a Superior District Library, is located at 541 Library Drive in Sault Ste. Marie. For more information, check www.baylisslibrary.org.
