Suspend reality as you join master storyteller and local writer GennaRose Nethercott’s with her debut novel, Thistlefoot. In the tradition of modern fairy tales like Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Naomi Novik's Spinning Silver it is a sweeping epic rich in Eastern European folklore about the ancestral hauntings that stalk us, and the uncanny power of story. And there will be crankies!
