ONLINE CLASS: Where the Crawdads Sing: Fact vs. Fiction (2119)

Two Mondays: March 1 and 8, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

$70.00 (10% off for members)

Seventy-year-old retired wildlife biologist Delia Owens was a debut novelist in 2018, the year her breakout book Where the Crawdads Sing was published. The selling power of the book surprised everyone, include Owens herself, and in 2019, it sold more print copies than any other adult title in any genre that year. While the novel, which follows a girl who struggles with feelings of extreme loneliness while isolated in the wilderness, is undoubtedly an engrossing story, many readers have been unaware of the nonfictional elements that echo Owens’ past with her husband Mark.

In this class, we’ll dissect both the novel and the related real-life scandal of Owens and her husband that involves poachers, divorce, murder, and secrets one might have believed were long since buried.

Two Mondays: March 1 and 8, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Online Class.
