Doors open at 6pm at Mad Art Gallery, the 1930’s Art Deco designed Third District Police Station, in historic Soulard. Guests will get the full station house experience with drinks served from behind the bars of the Sergeant's desk and special seating in jail cells! Delicious BBQ dining by advance order** is available from Capitalist Pig Handcrafted BBQ.
At 7pm, Terry Hayes takes the stage to reveal I AM PILGRIM. Called “Simply one of the best suspense novels I’ve read in a long time,”by NY Times best-selling author David Baldacci, Hayes grabs readers with a challenging police investigation that leads to a taut, terrifying race against time and bio-terrorism, sending the former head of a U.S. espionage unit on a climax-building chase across the globe; from the White House to Afghanistan;
Hayes is the award-winning writer and producer of numerous big screen films, including Dead Calm, Payback, Flightplan, Road Warrior, and Bangkok Hilton; as well as Emmy-nominated television movies and mini-series. He will be interviewed on stage by St. Louis crime novelist Scott Phillips, author of nine books, including The Ice Harvest, also a feature film, directed by Harold Ramis and starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton. Phillips’ newest novel, Hop Alley, will be published in May and available for purchase at the event.
