The New Canaan Library is pleased to welcome Charlotte McConaghy, author of the international bestseller Migrations, to talk about his last outing, Once upon a time there were wolves.
Ms McConaghy will speak via a live webinar from her home in Australia on Tuesday, November 23 at 7 p.m. EST. Zoom login information will be provided when registering at newcanaanlibrary.org.
At the heart of McConaghy’s new novel is the environmental experiment of successfully reintroducing wolves to the barren Scottish Highlands. Inti Flynn and his twin, Aggie, lead the re-introduction team of biologists. Inti hopes to heal not only the dying landscape, but also Aggie, undone by the terrible secrets that drove them out of Alaska. Inti also struggles, with the burden of evil she has witnessed, both to the landscape and between humans. Just as wolves surprisingly begin to thrive, and Inti and Aggie begin to heal and open up to new possibilities and relationships, the discovery of a farmer’s body casts suspicion and blame on wolves. If the wolves weren’t responsible, would the prime suspect be Inti’s new love?
