Best-selling British novelist Susan Lewis is set to return to Culver. It has been about a year since her initial visit to the area to gather information and inspiration for her novel “No Place to Hide”. She plans to celebrate the release of the book with the community which inspired its backdrop.
A launch party for the book will take place today from 6 until 8 pm at Cafe Max located at 113 South Main Street in downtown Culver. Lewis is also scheduled to speak at the Culver-Union Township Public library at 5 pm on Monday, August 3.
Last September Lewis spent about a week in the area, getting to know the various facets of Culver. She interviewed some local business owners, police officers and the local newspaper editor aiming to ensure that the details described in the book were as accurate as possible.
Location is an important factor in her stories. While the narrative is entirely fictional,it is chock-full of actual business and place names that area readers will recognize. The author said her intention is that people will love the description of the area enough that they’ll want to come to Culver to experience it for themselves. She said she’s done that in several places in England and New Zealand and had readers turning up to those places.
“No Place to Hide” by Susan Lewis is now available for purchase.
