Patton Oswalt with Claudia Rowe
Stand-up comedian, writer, and actor Patton Oswalt appears tonight to discuss his late wife Michelle McNamara’s book, I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer (Harper). McNamara, the author of the website True Crime Diary and a consultant for Dateline NBC, was investigating the case of this violent and still unidentified psychopath, who committed multiple sexual assaults and murders in California between 1976 and 1986. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and an afterword by her husband, Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by Michelle's lead researcher and a close colleague.
“What readers need to know—what makes this book so special—is that it deals with two obsessions, one light and one dark. The Golden State Killer is the dark half; Michelle McNamara's is the light half. It's a journey into two minds, one sick and disordered, the other intelligent and determined. I loved this book." —Stephen King
Patton Oswalt will appear in conversation with Seattle Times reporter Claudia Rowe, author of The Spider and the Fly.
Tickets are $35 and include one copy of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark and admit one person to the presentation, which includes an audience Q&A. Tonight’s program does not include a public signing.
