Virtual Author Talk with Bestselling Author Kate Quinn
October 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
We invite you for an unforgettable conversation with historical fiction writer Kate Quinn as she discusses her newest release, The Diamond Eye, and her other works. Quinn is the author of several New York Times bestsellers, including The Alice Network, The Huntress, and The Rose Code.
The Diamond Eye offers an unforgettable World War II tale of a quiet bookworm who becomes history’s deadliest female sniper. After Hitler’s invasion of Ukraine and Russia, Mila Pavlichenko must forge herself from studious young woman to deadly sniper – a lethal hunter of Nazis known as Lady Death. When news of her 300th kill makes her a national heroine, Mila finds herself torn from the bloody battlefields of the eastern front and sent to America on a goodwill tour. But when an old enemy from Mila’s past joins forces with a deadly new foe lurking in the shadows, Lady Death finds herself battling her own demons, and enemy bullets, in the deadliest duel of her life.
Based on a true story, The Diamond Eye is a haunting novel of heroism born of desperation, of a woman and mother who became a soldier and who found her place in the world that changed the course of history forever.
The talk will begin at 4:00 p.m. online. Registration is required. This event is presented by the Palm Springs Public Library.
