Julie Carrick Dalton presents Waiting for the Night Song
In conversation with Paul Lisicky
Greenlight hosts journalist Julie Carrick Dalton for a talk on her moving and timely debut, Waiting for the Night Song. This startling and gripping novel mines the tender complexities of friendships forged in childhood magic and ruptured by the high price of secrets. When an urgent message from Daniela brings Cadie back to her childhood home, the two long-estranged best friends are forced to face a dark secret that ended both their idyllic childhood bond and the magical summer that takes up more space in Cadie’s memory than all her other years combined. Now grown up, bound by long-held oaths, and faced with truths she does not wish to see, Cadie must decide what she is willing to sacrifice to protect the people and the forest she loves. Waiting for the Night Song is a love song to the natural beauty around us, a call to fight for what we believe in, and a reminder that the truth will always rise. Paul Lisicky, acclaimed author of Later and Lawnboy, joins Dalton in conversation at this virtual book talk!
