Join us for An Evening with Christina Baker Kline

Tuesday, March 28 at 7pm, Carroll Arts Center

Tickets $20 (includes copy of A Piece of the World)

About A Piece of the World

As she did in her beloved smash bestseller Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America’s history. Bringing into focus the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth, she vividly imagines the life of a woman with a complicated relationship to her family and her past, and a special bond with one of our greatest modern artists.

About Christina Baker Kline

Christina Baker Kline is the author of the novel A Piece of the World (2017), about the relationship between the artist Andrew Wyeth and the subject of his best-known painting, Christina’s World. Kline has written five other novels — Orphan Train, The Way Life Should Be, Sweet Water, Bird in Hand, and Desire Lines — and written or edited five works of nonfiction. Her 2013 novel Orphan Train spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list, including five weeks at # 1, and was published in 40 countries. More than 100 communities and colleges have chosen it as a “One Book, One Read” selection. Her adaptation of Orphan Train for young readers is Orphan Train Girl (2017).

Special thanks to HarperCollins Publishers.

Common Ground on the Hill  
Tony Trischka  
Saturday, November 1, 8 pm 
In a consistently adventurous musical career that spans nearly half a century, Tony Trischka has established himself as both a wildly inventive recording artist and one of America's foremost visionaries of the five-string banjo. Widely regarded as the most innovative banjoist of his generation, Trischka's dexterity and restless creative spirit have inspired generations of fans, and his influence in igniting the world of progressive acoustic music permanently altered the face of American roots music. An International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) award winner and Grammy nominee, Trischka has been a trailblazer influencing generations of roots-oriented players, from performers including Steve Martin, Bela Fleck and Tony Rice to Trischka's own musical hero, Earl Scruggs. A night with Tony Trischka is truly a night with the best of bluegrass!
