A Zoom Talk with Catherine Prendergast, Author of THE GILDED EDGE
Join us on Tuesday, October 5th, via Zoom, for a talk by Catherine Prendergast, author of The Gilded Edge: two audacious women and the cyanide love triangle that shook America. Kirkus Reviews writes : “The text reads like a dramatic novel fueled by sex, alcohol, and quests for fame and fortune.” Publisher’s Weekly writes: “… this punchy feminist tribute offers a fascinating look at two forgotten women of the Gilded Age.” Booklist writes: “Life in Carmel among its bohemian artists is a captivating subject, but Prendergast deepens it by entering the narrative to relay the difficulties she encountered researching Carrie and Nora, two fascinating women whose lives were largely buried in archives devoted to the men in their circle… Prendergast’s vivid history offers a sobering take on a romanticized time and place in which the men were lauded while the women were nearly erased.”
Cathy Prendergast writes: “Can’t wait to pen my book tour with a talk (virtually) at Falmouth Public Library. My home away from home. Much of this book was written in Falmouth at my uncle’s house (or Coffee Obsession when he was napping.)
Our favorite bookstore, Eight Cousins, will be taking pre-orders for Cathy’s book, with a limited number of bookplates signed by the author.
