A moving story with local resonance. Join us at Lundington Library for a simulcast of Christina Baker Kline's Free Library of Philadelphia appearance to discuss her newest novel.
"The figure at the center of Andrew Wyeth’s celebrated painting Christina’s World has her back to the viewer, but Kline (Orphan Train, 2013, etc.) turns her to face the reader, simultaneously equipping her with a back story and a lyrical voice...Kline lovingly evokes the restricted life of a sensitive woman forced to renounce the norms of intimacy and self-advancement while using her as a lens to capture the simple beauty of the American farming landscape: 'The flat nails that secure the weather clapboards, the drip of water from the rusty cistern, cold blue light through a cracked window.'" -- Kirkus Reviews
