Sharp Objects, Dark Places, and Gone Girls: An Evening with Gillian Flynn
In this talk, Gillian Flynn discusses her writing process, touching upon how she constructs her nail-biting thrillers, and how she builds her complex and disturbing female protagonists. This program, which can be structured as either a lecture or an onstage interview, covers all aspects of Flynn’s work, from plot, to character, to setting (including why the Midwest is an ideal region to set a mystery). Flynn also speaks about her life and work as a TV critic at Entertainment Weekly, and how it helped her develop her now full-time career as a mystery writer.
