Program Description

Virtual Author Presentation with Chris Bohjalian

Enjoy a live Zoom presentation with author Chris Bohjalian as he discusses his latest novel, The Hour of the Witch.

Register at bit.ly/bplbohjalian to reserve your free seat for this presentation.

The Hour of the Witch is set in 1600s Boston and focuses on a young wife who's accused of witchcraft.

Bohjalian has several international bestsellers under his belt. His novels have been made into 3 movies (Midwives, Secrets of Eden, and Sandcastle Girls -- in production) -- and one TV series (The Flight Attendant). His well-developed plots and engaging characters transport readers into the world created in each book.

If you have a question you'd like to submit to Bohjalian to possibly be answered during the program, email it to carolt@bloomingtonlibrary.org. There's no guarantee your question will be asked. Several libraries throughout Illinois are participating in this author event, so many questions will be gathered from around the state.
