About this Event
Kate Quinn, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Huntress and The Alice Network, returns with another heart-stopping World War II story of three female code breakers at Bletchley Park and the spy they must root out after the war is over. As the royal wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip whips post-war Britain into a fever, three friends-turned-enemies are reunited by a mysterious encrypted letter–the key to which lies buried in the long-ago betrayal that destroyed their friendship and left one of them confined to an asylum

The Rose Code

Martha Hall Kelly’s million-copy bestseller Lilac Girls introduced readers to Caroline Ferriday. Now, in Sunflower Sisters, Kelly tells the story of Ferriday’s ancestor Georgeanna Woolsey, a Union nurse during the Civil War whose calling leads her to cross paths with Jemma, a young enslaved girl who is sold off and conscripted into the army, and Anne-May Wilson, a Southern plantation mistress whose husband enlists. Inspired by true accounts, Sunflower Sisters provides a vivid, detailed look at the Civil War experience, from the barbaric and inhumane plantations, to a war-torn New York City, to the horrors of the battlefield.

Sunflower Sisters

The event is limited to the first 95 registrants. Cost is $5 for Friends members and $10 for non-members. You can join the friends starting at only $15 and enjoy discounts on upcoming events and our popular book sales.
