In this upcoming series of Reading with Robin, author Martha Hall Kelly will discuss her recent book Sunflower Sisters at Dame Farm and Orchards on July 21 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The native New Englander and historical fiction author became a New York Times best seller the week her debut novel Lilac Girls was published in April 2016. Kelly then went on to write two more prequel novels: Lost Roses, released in April 2019, and of course Sunflower Sisters, released in March 2021.

After the conversation between Robin and Kelly, guests can find out more about the author and her works during the question and answer session, as well as take home lots of goodies. Each guest will receive one personalized copy of Sunflower Sisters, six sunflowers grown from the farm, one pint of the farm’s fresh blueberries, drinks and light snacks, and a wagon ride tour around the farm. 

Attendees are welcome to browse the farm and pick additional flowers before the event begins. Tickets are $50, and space is limited to fifty guests. Book clubs and friend groups are encouraged to message the organizer for a group discount. Contact information can be found on the event website.
