Author Keija Parssinen
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Keija Parssinen, director of Columbia's Quarry Heights Writers' Workshop and author of our 2013 One Read selection "The Ruins of Us," will visit the library to discuss her critically acclaimed second novel, "The Unraveling of Mercy Louis." Described by Kirkus Reviews as "a modern Southern gothic with a feminist edge and the tense pacing of a thriller," the novel follows a high school basketball star in a small Texas oil town. A disturbing discovery and the spread of a mystery illness among the town's girls spark a witch-hunt, revealing long-kept secrets and shaking the community's faith. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
