Marginalia: Ariel Lawhon


Ariel Lawhon likes a good puzzle. She likes a mystery that she can research and research and research, and then artistically retell the story to readers. Her first book explored the unsolved mystery of a justice who disappeared in New York in the 1930s. Her second book explored the conspiracy surrounding the Hindenburg disaster.

I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon is published by Anchor Books. Lawhon will be in Wichita at Watermark Books on March 4 at 6:00 p.m.
