Portland author Anne Hendren will read from and sign her new book, “A Dream of Good and Evil,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.
This novel introduces architect Loisann “Lou” Cooper to a world fallen apart. A professional failure prompts her to quit her job, she discovers a man she loves is arrested in the brutal killing of a journalist, her sister lands in jail. Lou’s old boss and his socialite wife are not what they seem, and their actions directly affect Lou’s life. Deliverance appears in the unlikely form of an architecture project that restores Lou Cooper’s sense of justice.
Hendren has spent years researching the connection linking improved prison design with reduced recidivism. This forms the story arc in “A Dream of Good and Evil.”
Her reading is free and open to the public. For more information, call 530-756-4094.
