Johnson County Library will present a program with nationally renowned Kansas author Laura Moriarty at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, October 4, at the Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th Street, Overland Park, KS 66212.
Moriarty will talk about her latest novel, The Chaperone, set in the vibrant milieu of flapper-era New York City. The Chaperone follows teenage Louise Brooks and her complicated chaperone Cora, as Louise seeks fame and Cora craves answers to questions central to her very being. What they find instead is a city and summer that change both for the rest of their lives.
Moriarty is the author of three other novels, The Center of Everything, The Rest of Her Life and While I’m Falling. She is the recipient of the George Bennett Fellowship for Creative Writing at Phillips Exeter Academy. She is currently a professor of creative writing at the University of Kansas, Lawrence.
