85 Queen: An Evening with Kathy Reichs

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Event Details

Don’t miss this blockbuster event! Kitchener Public Library is thrilled (and maybe a little creeped out) to host bestselling author and forensic anthropologist Dr. Kathy Reichs this fall.

Reichs’s forensic thriller novels have been captivating readers since 1997, when her first book, Déjà Dead, became a New York Times bestseller and won the Ellis Award for Best First Novel. Since then, she has published 19 books featuring Temperance Brennan, with the most recent, The Bone Collection, coming in November.

She brings her own dramatic experiences – from teaching FBI agents how to recover human remains, to identifying part parts in her Montreal lab – to her writing. She is also a producer of the hit Fox TV series Bones, based on her work and her novels. She has also written six books in the Virals series for young adults.

Dr. Reichs testified at the UN Tribunal on Genocide in Rwanda, helped exhume a mass grave in Rwanda, and also assisted in identifying remains found at the World Trade Center after 9/11. She divides her time between Montreal and Charlotte, North Carolina.
