Katherine Addison, author of THE GRIEF OF STONES, on the Back Patio!
A Room of One's Own welcomes Katherine Addison, author (most recently) of The Grief of Stones, sequel to her previous novel The Witness for the Dead, for a reading and Q&A on our back patio!
About The Grief of Stones: Celehar’s life as the Witness for the Dead of Amalo grows less isolated as his circle of friends grows larger. He has been given an apprentice to teach, and he has stumbled over a scandal of the city—the foundling girls. Orphans with no family to claim them and no funds to buy an apprenticeship. Foundling boys go to the Prelacies; foundling girls are sold into service, or worse.
At once touching and shattering, Celehar’s witnessing for one of these girls will lead him into the depths of his own losses.
The love of his friends will lead him out again.
