Now out in hardback and available in eBook Formats Online, The Missing Italian Girl (Pegasus Books, February 2013) is the third crime novel in the Bernard Martin mystery series of Barbara Corrado Pope, professor emerita, UO Department of Women’s and Gender Studies.

March 2 at Knight Library marks the first reading from The Missing Italian Girl. Book signing and reception to follow.

“Pope plots Clarie’s search for the missing girl with precision and restraint. The true draw here is her portait of women—and their not-so-equal rights—at the turn of the last century. Wonderfully engaging. Even in the face of senseless limitations, Clarie proves it is possible to find joy, truth—and even oneself.” —Oprah.com
