The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library are celebrating the 21st season of the Brown Bag Lunch Author Series this year with a lineup of award-winning and acclaimed Minnesota writers.

Since the Brainerd Public Library is currently closed, this event will take place live on the Friends of Brainerd Public Library Facebook page.

Friends of the Library will host local author Frank Weber, who will speak about his latest novel, “Last Call, at noon Monday, April 6. In the thriller, Audrey Evans, 19, disappears in the dead of an arctic winter night after leaving a convenience store in Brainerd. Investigator Jon Frederick is called in and is not about to let Audrey end up one of the 40,000 missing women in the U.S.

“In Jon’s personal life, a deceptive past lover jars his intense relationship with Serena and sets in motion a pending tragedy,” the library said in a news release. “The explosive situation is amped up further after Jon’s name is used to solicit a woman, and one last call detonates it all. Referencing actual Minnesota crime cases, this spine-tingling thriller tests an investigator’s tender compassion and the gritty resilience of a soft spoken young woman.”

Weber is a forensic psychologist who has completed assessments for homicide, sexual assault and physical assault cases. He has received the President’s award from the Minnesota Correctional Association for his forensic work. Weber has presented at state and national psychological conventions and teaches college courses in psychology and social problems. Weber lives with his wife near Pierz.
