6:00 PM via YouTube
Join us for a conversation with Dirk Wittenborn, author of The Stone Girl (W.W. Norton & Company, June 2020), an exhilarating tale of deception, power, and vengeance set against the beautiful but haunted forests of the Adirondacks. The Stone Girl is a riveting account of male violence and the bravery of the unlikely band of women who stand against it. The novel's intricate plotting and unexpected twists will keep the reader guessing until the very last page.
