Author reading, discussion with S. Lee Manning
Join local author S. Lee Manning for a reading from her newest book “Nerve Attack,” followed by a discussion of writing thrillers, Tuesday, Oct. 12, 6:30 p.m.
Manning spent two years as the managing editor of Law Enforcement Communications before realizing that lawyers make a lot more money. A subsequent career as an attorney spanned from a first-tier New York law firm — Cravath, Swaine & Moore — to working for the state of New Jersey, to solo practice.
An award-winning writer, Manning is the author of international thrillers. Her life-long interests in Russia and espionage are reflected in her Kolya Petrov thrillers.
