I’ve got a few events on the calendar for this weekend but otherwise it looks like this is the calm before the arts and culture storm takes over! (Now I’m imagining a blockbuster movie where arts and culture take over the world!)

Anyhow… Coming up this weekend in Newton…!

THE OTHER WOMAN Launch Party with Author Hank Phillippi Ryan
Newtonville Books
Tuesday, October 9 at 7pm | FREE 


Boston investigative reporter and president-elect of National Sisters in Crime Hank Phillippi Ryan has won multiple Emmy Awards for her reporting and the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards for her mystery fiction. Now she’s back, drawing from her diverse experiences as a journalist and former US Senate staffer and political campaign aide, to create the political thriller and murder mystery THE OTHER WOMAN.

THE OTHER WOMAN, which hit number two on The Boston Globe Bestseller List, kicks off a spellbinding NEW SERIES, perfectly timed to add a dash of mystery to this election season. After being discredited for refusing to reveal a source, investigative reporter Jane Ryland stumbles upon a political cover-up — a high profile Senate candidate who may be carrying on an affair – and as she chases the story, it appears a serial killer hunting the young women of Boston is connected.

Dedicated fans are invited to a special LAUNCH PARTY for Ryan’s latest work.
