New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein, a former Manhattan district attorney and author of the critically-acclaimed Alex Cooper novels, will be the featured speaker on Monday, July 23, at 7 p.m. at the Darien Library.

New York City's restaurant scene is known all around the world for being both glamorous and cut-throat. In her new Alexandra Cooper novel, Night Watch, Fairstein takes readers on a tour of this industry where the powerful and wealthy often break bread with some of society's most unsavory characters. Night Watch received a starred review from Booklist, calling it, "a real winner from a legal-thriller master."

Fairstein was the chief of the sex crimes unit of the district attorney's office in Manhattan for more than two decades. Her Cooper novels are international bestsellers and have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She lives in Manhattan and on Martha's Vineyard.

Books will be available for purchase at this event. Refreshments will be served.
