Meet the Author: Eric Rickstad

Friday, September 21st

6:00pm - 7:00pm

 

Join us in welcoming Eric Rickstad, author of the recently released mystery/ thriller, What Remains of Her.

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Girls comes this chilling, harrowing thriller set in rural Vermont about a recluse who believes the young girl he's found in the woods is the reincarnation of his missing daughter, returned to help him solve her and his wife's disappearance.


Jonah Baum, a professor of poetry at a local college in Vermont, sees his ordinary life come tumbling down when his wife and young daughter vanish from their home. No evidence of a kidnapping. No sign of murder. No proof that Rebecca didn't simply abandon her marriage. Just Sally's crude and chilling drawings, Jonah's little lies, and the sheriff’s nagging fears that nothing is what it seems.


For Sally's best friend, Lucinda, it's something else. She trusts in Sally not to just disappear, not after they’ve shared so many secrets—especially about the woods and what they saw there. But she’ll never tell. No one would believe her anyway.


As the search for Rebecca and Sally intensifies, and as suspicion falls on Jonah, the disappearances become more relentlessly haunting than anyone can imagine. Because what's seen in the light of day is not nearly as terrifying as what remains hidden in the dark....


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Eric Rickstad is the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and international bestselling author of the THE NAMES OF DEAD GIRLS, THE SILENT GIRLS, LIE IN WAIT, and REAP, novels heralded as intelligent and profound, dark, disturbing, and heartbreaking. He lives in his home state of Vermont. 

 

Wicked Vermont Book Signing with Thea Lewis

Tuesday, October 2nd

6:00pm - 7:00pm

 

Please join us for a spooky night at Bridgeside Books as we welcome Vermont author Thea Lewis and her latest book, Wicked Vermont.

About the Book:

Vermont is a picturesque landscape, but the idyllic setting hides a sometimes dark and desperate past. H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer, may have been the University of Vermont's deadliest student. A Burlington resident made an empire partly by carrying contraband goods to and from Canada. The first United States president subject to a birther movement wasn't 44, but a much lower number. A Burlington schoolboy ran away with the circus and became an international sensation under the big top. 

Author Thea Lewis takes a revealing ride through the unique and colorful history of the Green Mountain State.
