Like her protagonist Temperance Brennan, best-selling author Kathy Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of only about a hundred ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the department of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is the former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada.  Reichs’ own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the long-running TV show Bones.

Tickets are available from Triad Stage by calling 336-272-0160 on online.  The evening begins with a reception at 6 pm, followed by a seated dinner  in Cone Ballroom of the Elliott University Center and a short business meeting.  The presentation begins at 7:45 and will be followed by a book signing. Copies of the author's books will be for sale by the UNCG Bookstore both prior to the event and during the evening.

Ticket prices are as follows:
  • Sponsored table of eight:  $600 (includes recognition on signage and in program if received by March 15)
  • Members of the Friends of the UNCG Libraries: $60
  • Non-members: $70
  • Program only (no dinner, admitted at 7:40 pm) $22 
Dinner reservations must be received by April 1.  Presentation-only tickets are available while they last.
