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.

“The Wrong Girl” features the return of Jane Ryland, the protagonist from Ryan’s “The Other Woman.” As an ex-colleague desperately searches for her birth mother, Ryland begins to suspect that a respected Boston adoption agency is reuniting birth parents with the wrong children.
