What's Wrong with That Girl? Mindy Mejia will be at the Altoona Public Library on Wednesday, October 25 @ 7:00pm. A discussion of psychological thrillers, the story behind Everything You Want Me To Be, and the rise fo the grip-lit phenomenon. 


Mindy Mejia is the author of The Dragon Keeper and Everything You Want Me to Be, which the Wall Street Journalcalled “tantalizing” and was picked as one of People Magazine’s best new books. Booklist magazine gave Everything You Want Me to Be a starred review and said, “Readers drawn to this compelling psychological thriller because of its shared elements with Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl will be pleasantly surprised to discover that Mejia’s confident storytelling pulls those themes into an altogether different exploration of manipulation and identity.”

Apart from brief stops in Iowa City and Galway, she’s lived in the Twin Cities her entire life and held a succession of jobs from an apple orchard laborer to a global credit manager. She’s currently working on a project set in Duluth and the Boundary Waters that may or may not be a trilogy.
