Why should you attend?

“A gripping story that exposes the Gilded Age’s tarnished veneer, when women who didn’t acquiesce to the standards of the day were locked away. Powerful and electrifying, Macallister is at the top of her game.”—Fiona Davis, author of The Masterpiece 

“Gruesomely gorgeous… McLaughlin writes about the natural world with a casual lyricism and un-self-conscious joy… Remarkable… The kind of writing that makes me shiver.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Smart and evocative… Medearis’s novel adeptly explores white privilege, racism, the demands of creating art, and how members of all socioeconomic classes close ranks when it comes to protecting their own.”—Publishers Weekly
