Will Lavender book signing April 17

Kentucky author Will Lavender will be signing copies of his debut novel Obedience in the Henderson County Public Library’s multipurpose room, Thursday, April 17th at 7:00 p.m. There will be copies of the book available for purchase or patrons may bring their own copy to be signed. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.

Obedience is a gripping suspense tale that follows students enrolled at the fictional Winchester University as they complete a sinister assignment for their Logic and Reason class. Their instructor, Professor Williams, has given the class a series of clues and puzzles that if solved correctly will prevent the hypothetical murder of a fictional missing woman named Polly. But as the students delve into the mystery, the lines between what is supposed to be hypothetical and what is real begin to blur. The more they solve, the more the students begin to suspect that Polly may be real and that her very life is in their hands.

Obedience is currently on the New York Times bestseller list and has earned rave reviews. Kirkus Reviews has called Lavender’s novel “an inspired thriller” and Publisher’s Weekly has said that Obedience is “complex” and “compelling.” A Library Journal review states that Lavender “has a knack for creepy characters and red herrings.”

Will Lavender currently resides in Louisville, Kentucky where he is working on his next novel.
