Koren Zailckas is the New York Times bestselling author of Mother, Mother and Smashed. She will talk with author Kelly Braffet about her propulsive new thriller - THE DRAMA TEACHER.

THE DRAMA TEACHER—which FOX has just picked up for film—is set in  Upstate New York and stars Gracie Mueller, mother of two and devoted wife to husband Randy. While she deals with the usual stressors and tedium most married couples do—balancing young children, marriage, money—life is comfortable (and mostly honest). However, Gracie has a lot to hide—about where she is from, who she is, and who she has been. When Randy’s failing career as a real estate agent makes finances tight and their home goes into foreclosure, Gracie feels she has no choice but to return to the illegal and high-stakes lifestyle of her past in order to ensure her family’s future.

Koren Zailckasfirst book - Smashed - was the riveting, absorbing story of her teenage alcoholism. The book sold over a half million copies and quickly became and international bestseller. Her darkly suspenseful debut novel Mother, Mother, published in 2013, won the Alex Award and received rave reviews from the national media, with the San Francisco Chronicle calling it “A firecracker thriller full of whip-smart psychological insights.”  In addition to her books, Korens writing can also be found in The Guardian, U.S. News & World Report, Glamour, Jane, and Seventeen magazine.
