Image: AJ O'ConnellA.J. O'Connell, a graduate of Fairfield University's MFA in Creative Writing Program, will read from her work and sign her novella "Beware the Hawk" at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 10 at Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield. The event is free and open to the public.

O'Connell is an author, journalist and adjunct professor who lives in Connecticut. Her work has appeared on the website for National Public Radio, in "Citizen Culture Magazine," "The Battered Suitcase," "The Wheel" and various anthologies. She has reported for The Norwalk Hour and the Boston Herald.

"Beware the Hawk" follows the travails of a courier for a secret, possibly terrorist society in Boston. "The climax is satisfying and dramatic, but it's the surprise ending - which kept me guessing to the final words - that makes this story incredibly fun," said Brooke Law of BooksDistilled.com.
