USD’s College of Arts and Sciences and Warwick’s Present Author, Comedian and Actor Patton Oswalt in Sold-Out Event

The University of San Diego’s College of Arts and Sciences in collaboration with Warwick’s Books will host New York Times bestselling author, Patton Oswalt, in conversation on his late wife Michelle McNamara’s book titled I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Utterly original and compelling, it has been hailed as a modern true crime classic—one which fulfilled McNamara’s dream: helping unmask the Golden State Killer.
