Boston writer at Jabberwocky
Best-selling crime author Hank Phillippi Ryan will visit Newburyport tomorrow to sign and discuss her newest thriller, “The Wrong Girl.”
Ryan, winner of the 2013 Mary Higgins Clark Award and 30 Emmys for her investigative reporting, will appear at 7 p.m. at Jabberwocky Bookshop at The Tannery Marketplace, 50 Water St., Newburyport.
