FORT KNOX, Ky. — Author and professor David Bell will discuss his latest thriller, Kill All Your Darlings, as part of Barr Memorial Library’s Virtual Authors at Your Library series Sept. 16, beginning at 6 p.m.

When a professor’s student disappears and is presumed dead, he passes her manuscript as his own – only to find out it implicates him in an unsolved murder. Kill All Your Darlings is a suspenseful, provocative novel about the sexual harassment that still runs rampant in academia, and the lengths those in power will go to cover it up.

Providence Journal called the novel a “psychological suspense of the highest order, a morally ambiguous, twist-laden tale that shines a light on the darkness that lurks inside all of us.” It was listed as an anticipated read by SheReads, Motherly, Palm Beach Daily News, Frolic, Crime Reads, and more. It was also a New York Post Best Book of the Week.

David Bell is the USA Today-bestselling author of 11 novels. His work has been translated into numerous foreign languages, featured on several bestseller lists, nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and has won the prestigious Prix Polar International de Cognac in 2013 for best crime novel by an international author. He is a professor of English at Western Kentucky University, where he co-founded and directs the Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing. Bell lives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, with his wife, writer Molly McCaffrey.

The virtual event will feature an exclusive Q&A with the author.
