Virtual Book Club: 'The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane'

Wednesday, May 19 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us to discuss our May virtual book club selection, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe.

Connie Goodwin needs to spend her summer doing research for her dissertation, but when her mother asks her to handle the sale of Connie’s grandmother’s abandoned home near Salem, she can’t refuse. Connie finds a key containing a fragment of parchment with a name written upon it: Deliverance Dane. This discovery launches Connie on a quest-to find out who thiswoman was and to unearth a rare artifact of singular power: a physick book, its pages a secret repository for lost knowledge.

Free and open to all. Sign up to attend.
