Just because there’s a deadly pandemic raging all around you doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the latest in literature.

On Wednesday, August 5, the High Point Public Library announced that it will host a virtual discussion with four bestselling authors: Susanna Kearsley, C. S. Harris, Anna Lee Huber and Christine Trent.

The online event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. using – what else? – Zoom. It will also be accessible on the Facebook live.

This virtual moderated discussion will be held by the library along with publishers Sourcebooks and Poisoned Pen Press. The discussion with the authors will focus on their collaboration on the historical fiction anthology, “The Deadly Hours,” which is scheduled to come out on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Some early readers of “The Deadly Hours” anthology have praised the work including, internationally bestselling author Anne Perry who called it “Charming” and said it offered “Four interconnected visits to a world of danger, wit, beauty and genuine romance.”

One author, Kearsley, is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of “time slip fiction.” Harris, also a bestselling author, is known for the Sebastian St. Cyr Regency mystery series. Huber is the award-winning writer of the popular Lady Darby Mysteries, while Trent, last but not least, is author of the Lady of Ashes Victorian mystery series.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Julie Raynor at 336-883-3093 or atmailto:julie.raynor@highpointnc.gov. Registration for the discussion is required for the Zoom event, though people will also be able to join the virtual event via Facebook Live.
