            Conversation with Richards will focus on her writing, works, and her upcoming new release, Four Found Dead. Questions from the public are welcome. The program is in collaboration with Clinton County’s Battle of the Books competition and Second Flight Books/Main Street Books of Lafayette. Following the discussion, books and other bookish goods will be available for purchase and autograph. The program is free, open to the public, and registration is not required.

Natalie writes “page-turning thrillers” (School Library Journal) for a Young Adult audience. Her first middle-grade book, through Penguin Random House imprint Delacourt, is called 15 Secrets to Survival and is due out in 2023. Four Found Dead will be Natalie’s ninth YA thriller from Sourcebooks and is expected to be a bone chilling addition to her psychologically twisted work.
