Conversation with journalist, novelist Phillippi Ryan tonight


The Brattleboro Reformer will host Hank Phillippi Ryan — an investigative reporter and the winner of multiple journalism and book awards — for a conversation before a live audience this evening in downtown Brattleboro.

Phillippi Ryan will sit down with Kevin Moran, the executive editor of the Reformer, to discuss her books, the process of writing and journalism in the first Brattleboro Reformer Conversations Series program. Phillippi Ryan's latest book is the acclaimed standalone psychological suspense thriller "Trust Me," which Suspense Magazine's reviewer calls "one of the best thrillers I've read in years."

The program is from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main St. The event is $5, and tickets are available at the door.

Phillippi Ryan is the on-air investigative reporter for Boston's WHDH-TV. She's won 34 Emmy Awards and dozens more journalism honors.

The nationally bestselling author of 11 mysteries, Phillippi Ryan's also an award-winner in her second profession of mystery novel writing — with five Agathas, three Anthonys, two Macavitys, the Daphne, and for "The Other Woman," the coveted Mary Higgins Clark Award.

Critics call her "a master of suspense" and "a superb and gifted storyteller," and she is the only author to have won the Agatha in four different categories: Best First, Best Novel, Best Short Story and Best Non-Fiction. Her novels have been named Library Journal's Best of 2014, 2015 and 2016.
