Watchung Booksellers Hosts Author Katherine Dykstra

June 16, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Katherine Dykstra, author of the must-read true-crime story “What Happened to Paula: On the Death of an American Girl,” will be in conversation with author Carolyn Murnick on Wednesday, June 16, at 7:30 pm. 

Selected as a New York Times Most Anticipated Book of the Summer, “What Happened to Paula” is a riveting investigation into a 50-year old murder case, long gone cold. Dykstra began her research wondering why no one had been held responsible for the mysterious death of Paula Oberbroeckling, an 18-year-old from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. As she uncovered the circumstances of Paula’s life and saw the parallels in the lives of so many women–even in her own–the question became, “how much control do women really have over their bodies and the direction of their lives?”

Captivating and expertly crafted, “What Happened to Paula” is part true-crime story and part memoir, as well as a timely and powerful look at gender, autonomy, and the cost of being a woman.

Dykstra will appear in-store to sign copies of “What Happened to Paula” the following day, Thursday, June 17 at 3:00 pm.

The event is free. Register at www.crowdcast.io/e/katherine-dykstra or visit www.watchungbooksellers.com.
