About this Event

Three stories we thought we knew, but we didn’t, not like we know them after we see them at midnight. This book takes each of these women as she faces her greatest challenge—a homeless Jane Austen. Joan of Arc at the stake. Mary Shelley in Italy, watching the water, wondering how she will face all the forces ranged against her if her husband, the poet Percy Shelley, doesn’t come back. Vastly different stories, but the moment is the same, the darkest one.
