Description

We invite you to join us for our monthly Book Club, discussing Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll. We are so excited to share this book with you all, and to hear your thoughts on it. 

The book opens on a Saturday night in 1978, hours before a soon-to-be-infamous murderer descends upon a Florida sorority house with deadly results. The lives of those who survive, including sorority president and key witness, Pamela Schumacher, are forever changed. Across the country, Tina Cannon is convinced her missing friend was targeted by the man papers refer to as the All-American Killer—and that he’s struck again. Determined to find justice, the two join forces as their search for answers leads to a final, shocking confrontation.

"Bright Young Women doesn’t put its focus on the murderer. It’s more interested in his victims—and the survivors who are on a mission to catch him before he kills again.”
TIME Magazine, "Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2023"

"Though fictionalized, this is a much needed, deeply researched historical corrective to the strangely romanticized takes on Bundy we’ve consumed over several decades. Based on newspaper records and other documentary evidence, the beauty, vibrance, and stolen potential of the women who died, and those who survived the Tallahassee attacks, are vividly rendered." —Boston Globe, Best Social Thrillers of 2023

"An utterly absorbing, disturbing, and absolutely essential read.”
—Booklist
