Katherine Arden: The Winternight Trilogy
It may be July, but we're excited to talk about Russian winters! Join us for a discussion with staff favorite, Vermont author Katherine Arden, as she brings us into the world of her nationally best-selling Winternight Trilogy.
Praise for Arden's work:
"Katherine Arden's Winternight Trilogy isn't just good. It's hug-to-your-chest, straight-to-the-favorites-shelf, reread-immediately good, and each book just gets better. The Winter of the Witch plunges us back into 14th Century Moscow, where old gods and new vie for the soul of Russia, and fate rests on a witch girl's slender shoulders. Prepare to have your heart ripped out, loaned back to you full of snow and magic, and ripped out some more." - author Laini Taylor
"Arden's gorgeous prose entwines political intrigue and feminist themes with magic and folklore to tell a tale both intimate and epic, featuring a heroine whose harrowing and wondrous journey culminates in an emotionally resonant finale." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
About the Books: Reviewers called Katherine Arden's novels The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower "lyrical," "emotionally stirring," and "utterly bewitching." The Winternight Trilogy introduces an unforgettable heroine, Vasilisa Petrovna, a girl determined to forge her own path in a world that would rather lock her away. Her gifts and her courage will draw the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but will this connection prove a blessing or a curse? The trilogy concludes with The Winter of the Witch, published in January of 2019.
