Description

Join us for a special day celebrating the holidays and the work of social philanthropist Caroline Ferriday, the inspiration for New York Times bestselling author Martha Hall Kelly’s novel Lilac Girls at the Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden.

Experience the Hay, Caroline’s beloved Connecticut home, staged in the traditional Polish fashion as inspired by her house guests. Learn about Advent and Polish Christmas traditions, including holiday delicacies and customs. Meet Martha Hall Kelly in Caroline’s kitchen and have her sign your copy of Lilac Girls. Tour sessions begin at 12:30 pm. Greenery will be available for sale to benefit the Bellamy-Ferriday House & Garden.

Then, carol your way to Memorial Hall to enjoy a Polish beverage and desserts followed by an author presentation with question and answer session at 3 pm. Martha will discuss Lilac Girls, including her research process, and where she took artistic license. Get insight into Martha’s next book about Caroline and her mother Eliza.

Lilac Girls is based on the true story of Caroline Ferriday and the Ravensbrück Concentration Camp survivors known as lapin (rabbits), whom Caroline championed. This acclaimed debut novel, also available on audiobook, reveals a story of love, redemption and terrible secrets that were hidden for decades.For more information on Martha Hall Kelly and her work, visit www.marthahallkelly.com.
