Chapters On Main will host a book signing event with author Anita Paddock from 5-8 p.m. Thursday at 816 Main St. in Van Buren.

Paddock will be autographing copies of her new true crime release “Cold Blooded.”

Author of the popular true crime novels “Blind Rage” and “Closing Time,” Paddock’s new true crime release is the true story of the murder of four people in the Arkansas River Bottoms.

All of Paddock’s books are about murders committed in and around her hometown of Van Buren. In all those cases, she had some connection with the victims, and sometimes with those who were convicted for the crimes. Copies of “Cold Blooded” will be available for sale starting today.

Paddock will also appear at an event hosted by the Women’s Literary Club of Van Buren on July 28 from 2-4 p.m. at the Van Buren Literay Club building located at 421 Webster in Van Buren. She will review her book and autograph copies. Light refreshments will be served.
