One of the most highly anticipated movies coming out this fall is the mystery-thriller, Gone Girl based on the best selling novel by Gillian Flynn. She also wrote the screenplay for the film version. Directed by Oscar nominee David Fincher, Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as a distraught man who may, or may not have murdered his wife.

In addition to Gone Girl, Flynn's 2006 novel Sharp Objects was an Edgar Award finalist and the winner of two of Britain's Dagger Awards. Her 2009 novel Dark Places was a New Yorker Reviewers' Favorite, Weekend Today Top Summer Read, Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2009, and Chicago Tribune Favorite Fiction choice. Movie rights to both books have been sold.

As part of Seattle Arts & Lectures' literary/arts series, Gillian will be speaking at Town Hall tonight (April 17th) from 7:30-9pm. Advance tickets for this event are currently sold out but a limited number of stand-by tickets will be available at the door. Click HERE for more information.
