LITERARY LOCALS | Janet Dick of Naperville


THE FACE IN MY WINDOW A former high school teacher and 40-year Naperville resident, Janet Dick, was inspired to write a historical novel when she first met Margo Huver. Margo had an intriguing story but needed help with the writing, so they formed a partnership and published, The Face in My Window last January. Margo was 25 with four children under five whose husband worked nights. Late one night, a man’s face appeared in her window and remained for several seconds despite Margo’s pounding on the glass and her hysterical screaming. The stalking continued, and she feared for her life and the safety of her children. Her family moved, and in June 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. When the shooter’s face appeared on her television, Margo fell to the floor and sobbed. Sirhan Sirhan was the face in her window that fateful evening.

Part One of the book is the true account of how Margo lived her life in fear for those six months. Part Two tells of when she was finally not afraid to make her story public, and Part Three is fiction but based on extensive research and Margo’s theory on her connection to Sirhan.

You can find The Face in My Window on Amazon or Amazon Kindle as well as Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville. -Mindy Kyle
