Belmont Book Discussion: Where the Crawdads Sing

Wednesday, January 203:00—4:00 PMOnline

We're reading Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens for this month's Belmont Book Discussion.

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove on the North Carolina coast. In late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is sensitive and intelligent; she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life – until the unthinkable happens. -- adapted from the publisher's summary.
