Curtis Memorial Library and Saltwater Celtic Music Festival present Paula de Fougerolles, Saltwater’s 2013 Writer in Residence, Thursday, July 18 at 6:00 pm in the library’s Morrell Meeting Room.

As a medieval historian, de Fougerolles is deeply informed. Throughout, the reader learns of the Dark Ages’ complicated cultural scene, but this is no textbook: The characters come alive with complex inner lives. Through it all, de Fougerolles writes well. This novel will leave readers eager for more. Exciting, immersive and authentic.
