WILTON, Conn -- The Wilton Library will welcome the top voices in historical fiction to share moving stories in a one-of-kind anthology on Tuesday, March 1.
These voices will include Beatriz Williams, Laure Willig, Heather Webb, Jennifer Robson, Jessica Brockmole, and Hazel Gaynor.
The stories that the voices will share revolve around the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month - Armistice Day, 1918. Each of the author’s passages differ vastly, with interesting settings, inspirations and a unique take on a fictional experience of the Great War—yet they are creatively linked to one another through the past. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed.
For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors, the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost. From the 82 year-old widow of a war hero, a Belgian rebel, to an American air pilot, and more. These are tales of misunderstanding and missed opportunities, vulnerability and authenticity.
With stories told from both female and male point-of-views come raw, powerful and poignant emotions told from the best in historical fiction. As families come back together, lovers reunite, and strangers take solace in each other, everyone has a story to tell. Nine authors share stories of love, strength, and renewal as hope takes root in a fall of poppies.
There will be a panel, Q&A, and book signing at this event, which takes places at 7 p.m. at the Wilton Library.
The library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Road.
