The Book & Nook and The Albert Wisner Public Library are excited to present "The Cozy Mysteries Panel!" Join us as we celebrate Katie Siegel's latest release, Charlotte Illes is Not a Teacher, and discuss cozy mysteries with Kensington authors Christin Brecher and Patrice McDonough! This will be a fun discussion moderated by Candace Rivera, owner of The Book & Nook. There will be time for audience Q&A and book signings from each author. The latest releases from Katie, Christin, and Patrice will be available for sale. 


About the Authors:



Katie Siegel is a former wannabe child detective who eventually realized that writing mysteries was more fun than trying (and failing) to solve them. In addition to writing the Charlotte Illes books and creating content for @KatieFliesAway on Tiktok, Instagram, and Youtube, she writes and produces the fantasy radio advice show podcast, Dear Liisphyra.  She graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in journalism and currently lives in New Jersey.

Christin Brecher is the author of the Shapshot of NYC Mysteries and the Nantucket Candle Maker Mystery Series. Born and raised in New York City, she lived in London, Connecticut, and Massachusetts before moving back to the city that will always have her heart. She previously worked in television production at the A&E Network, HBO and PBS before moving into business development and marketing at Time Incorporated. Visit her online at



Patrice McDonough is a former educator who taught history for more than three decades. A member of the Historical Writers of America, the Mystery Writers of America, and the Historical Novel Society, she splits her time between New Jersey and the Florida Gulf Coast. Please visit her online at
