The Boston Athenaeum is pleased to host JANE GOODRICH, author of House at Lobster Cove. Everything about this historical novel is enchanting, from its letterpress cover to its masterful writing to its compelling central character, inspired by Boston’s wealthiest and most elusive bachelor, who built Kragsyde, a shingle-style architectural masterpiece on the North Shore.
Using characters, letters and events from history, JANE GOODRICH’s first novel is part family saga and part love story, as well as an engaging personal journey for the author.
