Megan Abbott - Give Me Your Hand

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Abbott’s You Will Know Me appeared on many of 2016’s Best Of lists, and now the Edgar Award-winning writer follows it with a taut psychological thriller that explores the nexus of friendship and competition, passion and science. The story follows Kit Owens and Diane Fleming, who bond in a high school chemistry class. Brilliant, but always slightly off, Diane inspires Kit to pursue a scientific career, then reveals a secret that shatters their friendship. Ten years later, post-docs, the two meet again when they vie for a spot on a team researching a PMS-like disorder that leads women to destructive acts. As the emotions from the women’s youth come flooding back, so does the terrible secret, and Abbot expertly charts the rising tensions to their surprising end.
