Join hundreds of other avid readers for our Festival Luncheon with Christina Baker Kline, author of the forthcoming A Piece of the World, the New York Times bestselling Orphan Train, and four other novels. Book sales and signing will follow.
Christina Baker Kline is the author of six novels, including the forthcoming A Piece of the World, based on the iconic painting Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth. Her most recent novel, Orphan Train, spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, including five weeks at #1, and has been published in 38 countries. More than 100 communities and colleges have chosen it as a “One Book, One Read” selection.
Kline is a graduate of the UVA MFA program, where she was a Henry Hoyns Fellow. She lives in an old house in Montclair, New Jersey, with her husband, David Kline, and three sons, Hayden, Will, and Eli. She spends as much time as possible in an even older house in Southwest Harbor, Maine.
