All She Wrote Books, 75 Washington St, Somerville, MA 02143, USA

About the Event

In August, our Breakfast Club will read Killers of a Certain Age by NYT bestselling author, Deanna Raybourn. Mark your calendar for August 18th as we gather at All She Wrote Books to discuss these Golden Girl-esque assasins in this action-packed thriller.

Event Highlights:

  • Immersive Book Discussion with a Community of Enthusiastic Readers
  • Coffee and pastries from local French bakery, Michette

Tickets are limited to due to capacity at the bookstore, and each ticket will include either:

  • a copy of the breakfast book club pick; or 
  • general admission that includes coffee and pastries.

There are many ways to obtain a copy of the book (aside from your public library) — you can purchase it through allshewrotebooks.com, Bookshop.org, or Libro.fm to help support our work!

Our event has a limited capacity and we want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend. By letting us know that you can no longer attend, we can open up your spot to someone on our waitlist who is eager to participate.

 

"Inclusivity" isn't just a buzzword to us. We make every effort to ensure our space and events are accessible to and for everyone. If you or someone in your party needs accommodations, please email us at info@allshewrotebooks.com.

About the Book:

Older women often feel invisible, but sometimes that’s their secret weapon. They’ve spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they're sixty years old, four women friends can’t just retire—it’s kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller by New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award–nominated author Deanna Raybourn.

Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.  

When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they’ve been marked for death. 

Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They’re about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman—and a killer—of a certain age.
