(Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.)

Bestselling author and former NPR’s “All Things Considered” commentator, Silas House’s new novel is a riveting story of survival and hope, set in the not-too-distant future. As fires devastate most of the United States, Lark secures a place on a refugee boat headed to Ireland, the last country not yet overrun by extremists. As he runs for his life, Lark finds an abandoned dog who becomes his closest companion, and then a woman in search of her lost son. Together they form a makeshift family and attempt to reach Glendalough, a place they believe will offer protection. But can any community provide the safety that they seek?
