Reading and Slide Show, Into the Jungle, Barnes & Noble, Framingham, Thursday, June 6, 7pm

Please join me for a wild night in the rainforest at Barnes & Noble in Framingham! Just try surviving the dinner-plate sized spiders, limo-length anacondas, and shamans who, frankly, have it out for you! I’ll be sharing some slides featuring the terrors and wonders of the most biodiverse place on earth – the Amazon rainforest, all taken on a month-long research trip to the Peruvian Amazon.

Publishers Weekly names Into the Jungle one of its “Big Summer Books” and gives it a starred review, calling it a “ferocious fever dream of a thriller…an alternately terrifying and exhilarating tale…”

Kirkus Reviews calls Into the Jungle: “A death-defying Bolivian adventure in the primordial forest…The setting of Ferencik’s second female-driven adventure thriller is hair-raisingly vivid, replete with tarantulas, piranhas, jaguars, and electric eels….(this novel is) The closest thing to an actual hell ride you’ll ever experience (one hopes.) Thrilling, bloody, and ferocious.”
