Mystery, medical authors to speak in Carmel 


Carmel Clay Public Library will host two authors this month as part of its Visiting Author Series.


Karin Slaughter will preview her new book, “Pieces of Her,” at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 26.

“Karin is a New York Times Bestselling-author,” said Liz Hamilton, CCPL Foundation director. “Her genre is mystery. She’s been to Carmel a number of years ago. She has a new book just debuting, and she really wanted Carmel to be one of her stops promoting that new book.”

Slaughter has three books in development for film and television.

“She has a pretty big following, and our community really embraced her,” Hamilton said. “We’re already anticipating a huge crowd for her.”

CCPL will take its Visiting Author Series on the road Aug. 28. Dr. Rod Rhoades will discuss his book, “Aging Well,” at 3 p.m. at Carmel Senior Living, 13390 N. Illinois St.

“This is the first time we’ve tried anything like this,” Hamilton said. “We’re really excited to try this off-site. I thought what a great way for the library to be out in the community making an impact and making a difference. We’re excited to take one of our visiting authors to a different locale that has a built-in audience that can really benefit from what he has to say.”


Rhoades is a retired doctor and wanted to write a book sharing what he has learned on aging.

“He decided to write this book on aging well after all of his years of being a physician,” Hamilton said. “He thought he still wanted to make an impact, and he thought this is how he could do it. It gives you tips about things you should be thinking about and how you should use your body as you age.”
