IFOA and HarperCollins invite you to the release of The Finishing School by Joanna Goodman as part of the Toronto Lit Up book launch series.

The Finishing School
is a suspenseful, provocative novel of friendship, secrets, and deceit. A successful writer returns to her elite Swiss boarding school to get to the bottom of a tragic accident that took place while she was a student twenty years earlier.

Goodman’s fourth novel was listed by RT Reviews as one of “publishing’s most-anticipated upcoming releases”—one they “cannot wait” to read!
