Widely praised for
meticulous research, fine prose, and the compelling narrative drive of her
stories, Mary Doria Russell is the award-winning author of six bestselling
novels, including the science fiction classics The Sparrow and Children of God;
the World War II thriller, A Thread of Grace; and a political romance set in 1921
Cairo called Dreamers of the Day. With her
latest novels, Doc and Epitaph, Russell has redefined two towering figures of
the American West: the lawman Wyatt Earp and the dental surgeon Doc Holliday.
Coming soon, her novel Unremembered Lives tells the story of the young
union organizer Annie Clements, who was once known as America’s Joan of Arc.
Mary holds a Ph.D. in biological anthropology from the University of Michigan
and taught anatomy at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry.
She and Don Russell have been happily married for an unusually high percentage
of the years since 1970. They have one son and live in Cleveland, Ohio. Books
will be available for purchase and signing. Presented with the support of the
Friends of Morley Library.
