Not That I Could Tell

Online ticket sales have ended. Tickets are available at the door for $25.

Set in Yellow Springs, Ohio, Not That I Could Tell is an intriguing tale about what happens when an innocent night among friends takes a shocking turn, forcing them to examine what they actually know about each other. Booklist: “Full of slow burning intrigue, it will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies and Jennifer Kitses’ Small Hours.”

Jessica Strawser is the editor-at-large at Writer’s Digest, where she served as editorial director for nearly a decade and became known for her in-depth cover interviews with such luminaries as David Sedaris and Alice Walker. She’s the author of book club favorites Almost Missed You and Not That I Could Tell, a Book of the Month selection and Barnes & Noble Best New Fiction pick for March 2018. Jessica has written for The New York Times - Modern Love, Publishers Weekly, and others.
