Katherine Arden will join us for a discussion of her work. Arden is the author of The Winternight Trilogy (The Bear and the Nightingale, The Girl in the Tower, and Winter of the Witch).
The Bear and the Nightingale - In a village at the edge of the wilderness of northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, a stranger with piercing blue eyes presents a new father with a gift - a precious jewel on a delicate chain, intended for his young daughter. Uncertain of its meaning, Pytor hides the gift away and Vasya grows up a wild, willful girl, to the chagrin of her family. But when mysterious forces threaten the happiness of their village, Vasya discovers that, armed only with the necklace, she may be the only one who can keep the darkness at bay.
The Girl in the Tower - Orphaned and cast out as a witch by her village, Vasya’s options are few: resign herself to life in a convent, or allow her older sister to make her a match with a Moscovite prince. Both doom her to life in a tower, cut off from the vast magical world she longs to explore. So instead she chooses adventure, disguising herself as a boy and riding her trusted horse, Solovey, into the woods. A battle with some bandits who have been terrorizing the countryside quickly earns her the admiration of the Grand Prince of Moscow. But Vasya must now balance the growing challenges of the life she has chosen, navigating her increasingly risky relationship with Morozko and carefully guarding the secret of her gender to remain in the Grand Prince’s good graces—even as she realizes his kingdom is under threat from mysterious forces only she will be able to stop.
Winter of the Witch - Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers—and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, stronger than ever, determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of this conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself and her history as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all.
