Author Jeanne Blasberg on Her Novel, "Eden"

  • La Grua Center 32 Water Street Stonington, CT, 06378 United States (map)

What is Eden?

Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg will discuss her award-winning novel, EDEN.  Anita Shreve described it “[as] not just another farewell-to-the-summer-house novel, but instead a masterfully interwoven family saga with indelible characters, unforgettable stories, and true pathos. Most impressive, there’s not an ounce of fat on this excellent book.”  

Set in fictional Long Harbor, RI, which very closely resembles Watch Hill, has resonated with readers up and down the coast of New England. The novel points to the themes of paradise and creation and the challenges one matriarchal line of a family faces. Jeanne will discuss her inspiration, the nuances of the story, as well as her writing journey. Books will be available for signing and sale. 

Open to the public.
