Book Club: Where the Crawdads Sing

June 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Book Club for an evening of community and conversation as we discuss Delia Owens’ debut novel, #1 New York Times bestseller Where the Crawdads Sing.

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say; sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life – until the unthinkable happens.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. We hope you will join us for this conversation! Please email uvanyc@uvanyc.org to RSVP.
