Forensic Anthropologist Kathy Reichs
A Novel Approach to Crime Fiction
Evening Program with Book Signing
Wednesday, March 18, 2020 - 6:45 p.m.
Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs is known for her crime-fiction novels chronicling the adventures of Temperance (Bones) Brennan, a forensic anthropologist at the fictional Jeffersonian Institute (sound familiar?). Reichs was also producer of the popular TV series “Bones,” which centered on the character.
In the latest novel, A Conspiracy of Bones, Brennan must use all her tradecraft to discover the identity of a faceless corpse, its connection to a decade-old missing child case, and why the dead man had her cell phone number.
Reichs discusses the challenges of translating real-life drama into the stuff of fiction, and a career that has cast her in such roles as expert witness in the high-profile Casey Anthony trial and as assistant in the investigation at Ground Zero following the 9/11 disaster.
A copy of A Conspiracy of Bones (Scribner) is included in the ticket price and is available for signing after the program.
