New Canaan Library and Elm Street Books are pleased to present an evening with author Alice Elliot Dark. Please join them on Wednesday, September 21st at 6PM at The Country Club of New Canaan for a cocktail hour conversation with Ms. Dark and her editor, Marysue Rucci. The conversation will center on Ms. Dark’s most recent novel, Fellowship Point. Tickets are available at elmstreetbooks.com.
A beautifully woven, multilayered narrative, Fellowship Point tells the story of a lifelong friendship between Agnes Lee and Polly Garner. Two very different women with shared histories and buried secrets, they are tested in the twilight of their lives to determine the fate of their shared idyllic property, on Fellowship Point, Maine.
