Morning book group: ‘Once Upon a River’

Thursday, Sept. 9, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

On a dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the river Thames, an extraordinary event takes place. The regulars are telling stories to while away the dark hours, when the door bursts open on a grievously wounded stranger. In his arms is the lifeless body of a small child. Hours later, the girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life. Is it a miracle? Is it magic? Or can science provide an explanation?

Diane Setterfield’s book is a glorious tapestry of a book that combines folklore and science, magic and myth.

Borrow a copy of the book from the library. Email sbplinfo@southburlingtonvt.gov for more information.
