This event is presented by Montgomery County Public Libraries as a lead-up to the 24th Annual F.

The theme of the 2020 Festival is “Literature and Social Justice.” For more information, go to https://fscottfestival.org/

“Kingsolver’s dual narrative works beautifully. By giving us a family and a world teetering on the brink in 2016, and conveying a different but connected type of 19th-century teetering, Kingsolver creates a sense…that as humans we’re inevitably connected through the possibility of collapse, whether it’s the collapse of our houses, our bodies, logic, the social order or earth itself…In this engaged and absorbing novel, the two narratives reflect each other, reminding us of the dependability and adaptiveness of our drive toward survival.” (Meg Wolitzer, New York Times Book Review, 10/19/2018; retrieved from Amazon, 8/24/2020)
