Local author Katherine Arden to speak in Shoreham
SHOREHAM — Platt Memorial Library will host Vermont author Katherine Arden on the eighth stop of her national book tour on Monday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. Arden will be speaking about the third and final book in her Winternight trilogy, “The Winter of the Witch.”
Reviewers called Katherine Arden’s first two novels, “The Bear and the Nightingale” and “The Girl in the Tower,” lyrical, emotionally stirring and utterly bewitching. The Winternight Trilogy introduced an unforgettable heroine, Vasilisa Petrovna, a girl determined to forge her own path in a world that would rather lock her away. Her gifts and her courage have drawn the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but it is too soon to know if this connection will prove a blessing or a curse.
In the final book, Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers — and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides.
Copies of all of Arden’s books will be available for purchase. Arden will be signing her books. Light refreshments will be served.
The event is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities. For more information, contact Abby Adams at the Platt Memorial Library at 802-897-2647 or email [email protected].
