An Exclusive Talk with Martha Hall Kelly

Join us for a special event with the acclaimed author of Lilac Girls, the NY Times bestselling novel that revealed the incredible story of World War II heroine, Caroline Ferriday who lived in Bethlehem, Connecticut. Its prequel, Lost Roses is inspired by Ferriday’s mother, and celebrates the unbreakable bonds of female friendship. In her new book, Sunflower Sisters, which comes out on March 30th, Kelly tells the story of Ferriday’s ancestor Georgeanna Woolsey, a Union nurse during the Civil War. In her OLLI talk celebrating Women’s History month, Martha Hall Kelly will address the breadth of all three novels, and the remarkable women who inspired them. Martha Hall Kelly is a native New Englander and lives in Litchfield County.
