    • CPL Presents: Amanda Peters, Author of THE BERRY PICKERS (Main)

      Main Library, Lecture Hall, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Join AMANDA PETERS, the author of the debut novel The Berry Pickers, for a reading and conversation moderated by GRACE TALUSAN. Shortlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction, winner of the 2023 Barnes & Noble Discover Prize, and named on the Amazon Editors' Best Books of 2023 list, The Berry Pickers is a novel about the strength of familial bonds even in the face of deliberate attempts to sever such connections. The story follows the parallel lives and struggles of two Mi'kmaq siblings in the wake of a traumatic kidnapping in Maine, an event which forever sets Joe and his younger sister Ruthie on diverging paths toward their uncertain futures. Hailed as "poignant" in a Booklist starred review, The Berry Pickers is a powerful and necessary debut for our own time. This event is co-sponsored by the Cambridge Public Library Foundation.
