Lisa Scottoline to be guest speaker at Literary Voices™ event

Worldwide bestselling author Lisa Scottoline will be the guest speaker at the Library Endowment Trust’s 15th annual Literary Voices™ dinner.

The event will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club at 7:00 p.m. The chairs for the event are Karen Delaney and Gail Huneryager. Governor Bill Anoatubby of the Chickasaw Nation will be honored as the Lee B. Brawner Lifetime Achievement award in support of libraries.

Lisa Scottoline’s legal thrillers have been described as “punchy, wisecracking thrillers” and her writing style as “one of the best-branded franchise styles in current crime writing.” Her first novel, Everywhere That Mary Went, became a bestseller and was nominated for the Edgar Award, the most prestigious award given in crime fiction.

Scottoline’s novels are known for their emotionality and their warm and down-to-earth characters, which resonate with readers and reviewers long after they have finished the books. Scottoline’s most recent book, "Damaged," was included in PEOPLE magazines “Best New Books” list on August 29, 2016.

While most people may recognize her writing as a top legal thriller author, many people don’t know that Scottoline writes a weekly newspaper column with her daughter called “Chick Wit” which is a fun take on life from a women’s perspective. These stories have been collected in a New York Times bestselling series of humorous memoirs include their latest book, "I’ve Got Sand in All the Wrong Places".

The Literary Voices dinner benefits the Library Endowment Trust, whose funds support services and programs of the Metropolitan Library System.
