In her discussion of "the loners, the lovers, and the marrieds," Shmurak also will touch upon her own amateur sleuth, Susan Lombardi, who returns in Death at Hilliard High, the latest installment in the author’s mystery series, organizers said.
Shmurak is professor emeritus at Central Connecticut State University. She is the author of 10 books, including Deadmistress, the first Susan Lombardi mystery and a 2004 Writers Notes Magazine Notable Book. Shmurak also facilitates book discussions for the CT Humanities Council, including the "Connecticut Sisters in Crime" series which was recently held in New Haven. Copies of Death at Hilliard High will be available for purchase and signing following Shmurak’s talk.
