The University of Wyoming Libraries will bring author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs to campus on April 10, 2018. Reichs will deliver a free public talk at 1:30 p.m. in the College of Education Auditorium and will also speak at a fundraising dinner that evening for UW Libraries Development Board.
Reichs’s first novel, Deja Dead, became a New York Times bestseller and won the 1997 Ellis Award for Best First Novel. Just a few other titles in her prolific Temperance Brennan series include Death du Jour, Grave Secrets, Bare Bones, and Cross Bones. Reichs was a producer for the television series Bones, based on her novels and real-life work experience. Two Nights is Reichs’s latest book and introduces her readers to a new heroine: Sunday Night.
Reichs is one of only 100 forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. She is currently a member of the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada and a professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
