Alma Katsu’s novel “The Hunger” made several 2018 best-book lists, led the horror category in The New York Times’ summer-reading recommendations and was nominated for a number of awards. Her next novel, “The Deep,” will be published in March. Marjorie (Flacks) Wittner was reappointed by Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker to a second five-year term as chair of the Commonwealth Employment Relations Board. Marjorie, husband Ben and, depending on the year, different iterations of her children, Mike and Allie, live in an 1890s home in the historic district of Salem. When she’s not writing decisions, Marjorie enjoys biking, yoga, theater, word games and traveling, especially to Los Angeles, where Allie now lives.
