About the Event
Join us for an evening of intrigue & mystery with New York Times bestselling author, Janelle Brown, on a tantalizing Murder Mystery Dinner Adventure.
In her new book, Watch Me Disappear, Janelle Brown plots a stirring story that will keep readers guessing until the very last page. This Adventure will begin with an author talk on this riveting novel and a discussion on the premise: who you want people to be makes you blind to who they really are.
Then, following our author talk, our Murder Mystery immersive performance & dinner will begin. Just like in Janelle's book, your imagination will be bombarded with questions and suspicion as a disappearance—a murder—occurs. Each guest will receive a character and be led through a devious (sometimes comedic) plot line, where the audience's job is to discover which suspect is the killer. By the end of this evening, guests will have been led through one treacherous plot and be prepared to uncover the many secrets woven through the pages of Watch Me Disappear.
Your Adventure includes interactive Murder Mystery performance, three course dinner*, beverage**, tax & gratuity, author talk, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the author up close & personal in an intimate and authentic setting.
*Guests can choose between the following menu items: Lasagna al Forno, Penne Primavera (vegetarian), or Chicken Marsala
**In the interest of time & not disturbing the actors during the Murder Mystery Show, guests have the option to pre-purchase drink tickets to exchange for beer or wine during the event. The Drink Ticket Price includes your beverage (chosen from a pre-approved selection of beer or wine), tax, & gratuity; tickets can be purchased below.

But then Olive starts having waking dreams—or are they hallucinations?—that her mother is still alive. Jonathan is worried about Olive's emotional stability, until he starts unearthing secrets from Billie’s past that bring into question everything he ever knew about his wife. Is it possible that Olive is right—that Billie isn’t dead after all?
Together, Olive and Jonathan embark on a quest for the truth—about Billie, their family, and the stories we tell ourselves about the people we love.
