Course Description

Due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant during the past few weeks this special event has been rescheduled for March 14, 2022. 

Join us for this FAU Osher Lifelong Learning, Fort Lauderdale exclusive opportunity to participate in a conversation with best-selling author James Patterson and his co-author for The Horsewoman, sportswriter Mike Lupica. This exciting program includes: the authors discussing their new book, taking questions from the audience and an autographed hardcover edition of the novel. The Horsewoman is a thriller with mother, Maggie Atwood and daughter, Becky McCabe, both champion riders, vowed to never, ever, go up against one another. Until the tense, harrowing competitions leading to the Paris Olympics. Mother and daughter share a dream: to be the best horsewoman in the world. Coronado is Maggie’s horse. An absolutely top-tier Belgian warmblood. Sky is Becky’s horse. A small, speedy Dutch warmblood.  Only James Patterson could bring you such breakneck speed, hair-raising thrills and spills. Only hall of fame sportswriter Mike Lupica could make it all so real. Registration includes an autographed hardcover edition of The Horsewomen.
“Patterson and Lupica manage to get deep into the world of high-level show jumping and also, incredibly for two men, deep into the lives of three generations of strong women.  I don’t know what’s more compelling—the white-knuckle description of the horse shows in the lead-up to the Olympics or the tense, complex relationships among the three women.  We grow to care deeply about these horsewomen.  This is a hugely entertaining, riveting, page-turner of a book.  A thrilling and thoughtful read.” —Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Chief Inspector Gamache series
The Horsewoman is more than a thriller--it’s an eye-opening ride through the high-stakes world of equestrian show-jumping. Patterson and Lupica make a great team, writing at a full gallop and with faultless timing of the lives of three fearless women connected by blood, competition, and a passion for fast horses.”
