Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology

Most people do not think to observe geology from the sidewalks of a major city, but all David B. Williams has to do is look at building stone in any urban center to find a range of rocks equal to any assembled by plate tectonics. Stories in Stone is a love letter to building stone, bringing to life the geology you can see in the structures of every city.

A Conspiracy of Wolves

1374. When a member of one of York's most prominent families is found dead, his throat torn out, rumours spread like wildfire that wolves are running loose. Persuaded to investigate by the victim's father, Owen Archer is convinced that a human killer is responsible. But before he can prove his case, a second body is discovered, stabbed to death. Is there a connection? Teaming up with Geoffrey Chaucer, who is in York on a secret mission on behalf of Prince Edward, Owen's enquiries will draw him headlong into a deadly conspiracy.

A Single Thread

After the Great War took both her brother and her fiancĂ©, Violet Speedwell has become a "surplus woman," one of a generation doomed to a life of spinsterhood after the war killed so many young men. She saves enough to move to Winchester, home to one of England's grandest cathedrals, where she is drawn into a society of broderers—women who embroider kneelers for the Cathedral, carrying on a centuries-long tradition of bringing comfort to worshippers. But when forces threaten her new independence and another war appears on the horizon, Violet must fight to put down roots in a place where women aren't expected to grow. An immersive, moving story of a woman coming into her own at the dawn of the Second World War, from internationally bestselling author Tracy Chevalier. Event is free to attend; Priority Signing Line Ticket available with pre-order of A Single Thread from Third Place Books.

Where the Light Enters

From the international bestselling author of The Gilded Hour comes an enthralling epic about two trailblazing female doctors in 19th-century New York. Dr. Sophie Savard, daughter of free people of color, returns home to the achingly familiar rhythms of Manhattan in the early spring of 1884 to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. But in New York, it seems that the advancement of women has brought out the worst in some men. Unable to ignore the plight of New York's less fortunate, these intrepid cousins draw on all resources to protect their patients.
