Hygge House Books welcomes author Henriette Lazaridis to Broken Creek Vineyard for an evening of wine, books, and great company.
The New York Times calls Terra Nova a place "where adventurous, curious women rule". Set in 1910, it follows two fictional Antarctic explorers and the woman who loves them both. This is a love triangle, a passionate rivalry, and a strong, inspirational female character set against a dazzling frozen landscape.
“Terra Nova is like Jack London and Anita Shreve had a literary baby: an absolutely immersive story of Antarctic survival, suffrage, a love triangle, art, and betrayal." --author Jenna Blum
"What would you risk to fulfill a desperate ambition? Whom would you betray if you had to—and at what cost to you, the ones you love, the world? ...One of the best, most complex female characters I’ve read in years." --author Caroline Leavitt
WHEN: Thursday, September 28, 2023
WHERE: Broken Creek Vineyard, 614 South St, Shrewsbury, MA 01545
TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Additional wine and books will be available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own nibbles to nosh on!
