Hellenic American Women’s Council Presents Author Jeffrey Siger

CHICAGO – The Hellenic American Women’s Council (HAWC) – Great Lakes Region will welcome international bestselling author Jeffrey Siger for a book discussion and reading at Lincolnwood Public Library, 4000 Pratt Avenue in Lincolnwood, IL, Saturday, February 17, at 2 PM. The event will be moderated by journalist and author Maria A. Karamitsos.

Siger returns to Chicago on the heels of the release of At Any Cost, book 13 in the Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis series. The author, an American living on the island of Mykonos, is a former Wall Street lawyer. He gave up his career as a name partner in his own New York City law firm to write the international bestselling, award-winning Chief Inspector Kaldis series of mystery thrillers telling more than just a fast-paced story.

The New York Times described his novels as “thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales” and named him as Greece’s thriller novelist of record. Athens Insider Magazine hails him as “a literary star,” the Greek government selected him as the only American author writing novels serving as a guide to Greece, and Reader’s Digest called him “one of our new favorite authors.”

Siger also served as Chair of the National Board of Bouchercon, America’s largest mystery convention, and as Adjunct Professor of English at Washington & Jefferson College, teaching mystery writing.

Karamitsos is the founder and former publisher/editor of WindyCity Greek magazine. Her work has been published in various Greek media and other publications. She has contributed to two books and recently completed her first novel.

Following the discussion on February 17, Siger will read from his latest book and sign copies for attendees. His books are available for pre-order via a special partnership with Volumes Bookcafe, a Greek-owned bookshop in Chicago, and will be delivered to the event.
