The Bookmarked Literary Arts Festival presents novelist and screenwriter Chris Bohjalian this Saturday, September 30, 5:00 pm at the Inn at Lander—Wind River Room. Everyone is welcome to this free opportunity—please join us!
Mr. Bohjalian uses his gripping fiction to explore contemporary social issues and how they play out in the lives of ordinary people, as well as to shed light on some of the most important moments in history. His writing delves into such topics as domestic violence, global climate change, gender identity, genocide, adultery, animal rights, adoption, homelessness, mental illness, and human trafficking with equal facility. He is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of some two-dozen books, and his work has been translated into over 35 languages.
His latest novel is The Lioness, named one of the best books of 2022 by The Washington Post, a blistering story of fame, race, love, and death set in a world on the cusp of great change. In Tanzania 1964, a luxurious African safari turns deadly for a Hollywood starlet and her entourage when a kidnapping gone wrong turns deadly. A “brilliant whydunit” that “is not to be missed” (Publisher’s Weekly–starred review–who included it on their Best Books of 2022 list), Bohjalian’s instant bestseller already has a television adaptation in the works.
