Tell a Yarn: The Botanical Daughter

What could be better than working on your favorite knitting or crocheting project while someone reads out loud to you?

Join our yarn circle/adult story time for your dose of productive relaxation! On April 3, we will start reading A Botanical Daughter by Noah Medlock — “A captivating tale of two Victorian gentlemen hiding their relationship away in a botanical garden who embark on a Frankenstein-style experiment with unexpected consequences.” (Publisher Annotation).

Kaitlin Conner of Booklist said: “With touches of sly humor and plenty of moody atmosphere, this incisive blend of ecohorror and gothic fiction will resonate with fans of Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Mexican Gothic (2022) and T. Kingfisher's What Moves the Dead (2022).” And according to Ally Wilkes, this book is “deliciously arch and bursting with eccentricity... an extraordinary debut.”

Bring your yarn projects to the Library on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30 to 3 pm in the Sheffer Gallery. We'll read aloud while you work on your project. Or you can just listen — no working necessary! No registration is required, and no yarn instruction provided.
