Delaware, OH — Mindy McGinnis is celebrating the release of her third book,A Madness So Discreet, with a release party at the Delaware County District Library’s (DCDL) Orange Branch.

The Tuesday, October 6 visit is sponsored by Fundamentals Parent-Teacher Store.

“A Madness So Discreet, Mindy’s new gothic thriller, offers something new and, might I say, awesome, to fans of her dystopian duology, Not a Drop to Drink and In a Handful of Dust,” said Teen Librarian Becky Woodruff. “Our teens love creepy reads, so Madness and the new anthology Among the Shadows: 13 Stories of Darkness and Light are sure to be popular this fall.”

A Madness So Discreet tells the tale of a girl who is sent to an asylum in Victorian times. Once a visiting doctor recognizes her potential beneath her anger they work side by side on crime scenes to uncover more about criminal psychology.

All of the featured titles are recommended for young adult reading levels. Copies of the books may be purchased the night of the event or in advance through Fundamentals by calling 740-363-0290.
