(KENNETT SQUARE, PA – January 8, 2020) – Hadley, a fund of The Chester County Community Foundation, presents “A Conversation with Mark Bowden”. Mark is the author of thirteen books, including the number one New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down as well as the 2017 bestseller Hue 1968. The event will focus on a conversation regarding Marks most recent book The Last Stone.
NPR praises The Last Stone by saying; “The Last Stone is a rigorous documenting of the 40-year journey taken by Montgomery County detectives and the cold-case team that interrogated Lloyd Welch. It’s a riveting, serpentine story about the dogged pursuit of the truth, regardless of the outcome or the cost. And it’s a useful reminder that in an age of science, forensics, and video and data surveillance, the ability of one human being to coax the truth from another remains the cornerstone of a successful investigation”.
Publisher Weekly says; “Bowden delivers a narrative nonfiction masterpiece in this account of fiercely dedicated police detectives working to close a cold case… This is an intelligent page-turner likely to appeal even to readers who normally avoid true crime.”
Jessie Cox, the Committee Chair of Hadley Fund expresses her excitement for this upcoming event. “Having Mark Bowden come and discuss his newest book with us is an honor,” Jessie expressed. “Our mission is to bring free events to the Kennett Square area in order to create a priceless experience and this is sure to be another memorable community program.”
The event is scheduled for Sunday, February 16th, 2020 at 3pm and will take place at the Kennett Friends Meeting at 125 West Sickle Street, Kennett Square. It is free to attend but seating is limited. To RSVP call 610-696-0501 or go to hadleypresents.ticketleap.com.
