ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Literati Bookstore will welcome award-winning author Louise Penny on Friday through its virtual At Home with Literati series.

A gem in Ann Arbor’s independent bookstore scene, Literati has brought over 350 authors to Tree Town virtually through its online series since April 2020.

New York Times bestselling author Will Schwalbe will join Penny in support of her novel “The Madness of Crowds,” the seventeenth installment of Penny’s bestselling Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series.

The acclaimed series has won numerous awards including Macavity Awards, Agatha Awards and the Canadian Arthur Ellis Award among others. Its latest installment sees protagonist Chief Inspector Armand Gamache act as protective detail for an event with a professor with controversial ideas in the village of Three Pines. After a murder is committed, Gamache and his team must investigate the death and a moral dilemma.
