Best-seller Liane Moriarty to talk about her latest book, Nine Perfect Strangers

Fans of HBO’s Big Little Lies and other modern literary classics penned by Liane Moriarty will be lined up around the corner when the best-selling author stops by Bolen Books for a chat with Hal Wake on Nov. 17.

Moriarty will be talking about her latest book, Nine Perfect Strangers, which is already being lauded as one of her best efforts yet. The fictional story is pinned around nine people who travel to a remote health resort, each for their own reasons.
