Elizabeth McCracken, 'Bowlaway,' with Lydia van den Berg

Presented by Porter Square Books at Porter Square Books, Cambridge MA

Elizabeth McCracken, 'Bowlaway,' with Lydia van den Berg

Author Elizabeth McCracken reads from her new novel ‘Bowlaway,’ appearing in-conversation with Lydia van den Berg.

From the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century—nothing but a bowling ball, a candlepin, and fifteen pounds of gold on her person—Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford, Massachusetts. She has no past to speak of, or at least none she is willing to reveal, and her mysterious origin scandalizes and intrigues the townspeople, as does her choice to marry and start a family with Leviticus Sprague, the doctor who revived her.
