Posted Date: 1/30/2013 4:00 PM

Jenny Milchman reads from her debut novel Cover of Snow during a brown bag lunch program at 12 noon Tuesday, February 5, at Central Library, 219 N. Church St. Following the reading, there will be a reception and book signing. This event is free and open to the public. Bring your lunch; drinks will be provided.

Cover of Snow opens as Nora Hamilton learns her husband has committed suicide. Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all?

Unraveling her late husband’s final days, Nora searches for an explanation, but finds a bewildering resistance from Brendan’s best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his brittle mother. It quickly becomes clear to Nora that she is asking questions no one wants to answer. For beneath the soft cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep its presence unknown...and its darkest secrets hidden.
