An Evening with Kristin Hannah
Thursday, April 22, 7 p.m. via Crowdcast
About the Event
Readers have travelled to historic Paris and 1970’s Alaska with New York Times bestseller Kristin Hannah. Now visit the Great Plains during the darkest days of the Dust Bowl and Great Depression in The Four Winds as one woman makes the impossible choice: fight for her dying farmland or take a chance and go west. Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing says, “This mother’s soul, suffering the same drought as the land, attempts to cross deserts and beat starvation to save her children with a fierce inner strength called motherhood. A timely novel highlighting the worth and delicate nature of Nature itself.” Hannah’s novel Firefly Lane has been adapted as a Netflix series featuring Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke. Hannah will be in conversation with Tayla Burney, a longtime public radio producer in Washington, D.C. The first 150 people to register on Crowdcast for this free event will receive a complimentary copy of The Four Winds.* This event is sponsored by the Fairfax County Public Library.
*We have reached our 150 recipients of copies of The Four Winds. (You’ll be receiving an email). If you’d still like a copy of the book, you can pre-order/order it by clicking the button below.
