Set ten years in the future, Julia Glass’s Vigil Harbor is a gripping mystery and drama set against the quaint backdrop of a coastal New England village. When two strangers arrive in a town already reeling from the tumult of a slew of divorces and relentless natural disasters, it’s clear that something much bigger than a storm is brewing over Vigil Harbor. Glass seamlessly blends voices and plotlines into a compelling novel that confronts the realities of climate change while painting an intimate portrait of domestic unrest.

Join Glass, author of award-winning novels Three Junes and I See You Everywhere, in conversation with author and Hogarth Books Editor in Chief David Ebershoff for an intriguing conversation on climate, personal upheaval, and mystery.
