04:00 PM until 05:15 PM


The Friends of the Larchmont Public Library are pleased to present author Lara Dearman, on Sunday, January 20, at 4:00pm, as she reads from her newly published second novel, DARK SKY ISLAND (Crooked Lane Books, September 2018).  Dearman’s presentation will be held in the Larchmont Village Center located directly behind the Larchmont Public Library. Refreshments will be available at 3:30pm.



In this thrilling sequel to The Devil's Claw, DCI Michael Gilbert is called out to Sark - the world's first dark sky island - after bones are found on Derrible Bay. Journalist Jennifer Dorey, driven by a secret in her own past, follows him. The remains are decades old, but after a body is discovered Jennifer and Michael fear there may be a killer on the island. Together they follow a dark trail of bad blood and a conspiracy of silence. Everyone on the island is under suspicion. No one is what they seem. And the murderer could strike again at any time. 



Lara was born and raised on the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey. She moved to the UK to study International Relations and French at the University of Sussex, after which she endured a brief career in finance before giving it up to be a stay at home mum to her three children. A short course in Creative Writing at Richmond Adult Community College led to Lara studying for a Masters in Creative Writing at St Mary’s University, London. She graduated in 2016 with a distinction. Having moved from Guernsey to Brighton to London to Paris to Singapore and back to London over the last fifteen years, she has now settled in Westchester, New York, with her family. DARK SKY ISLAND is her second novel and like her critically acclaimed debut novel, The Devil’s Claw, combines her love of Guernsey, myths and folklore with her obsession with crime fiction and serial killers.
