Join us for a talk with  Diane B. Saxton,  author of “Peregrine Island”

Set on a privately owned island in the middle of Long Island Sound, Diane B. Saxton’s award-winning novel “Peregrine Island” is a psychologically complex mystery that interweaves the stories of three generations of women, one valuable painting, the artist who created it, and those who would do anything to possess it–even kill.

Diane B. Saxton was a journalist with Vanity Fair, Holiday Magazine, Huffington Post and Greenwich Review.  A new chapter opened up for her after interviewing Amnesty International US founder Hannah Grunwald. Alarmed that the stories of incredible and influential lives such as Grunwald’s could be lost as the Greatest Generation passes, Saxton began capturing their histories and complied them into a 1,000 page biographical collection, which became the inspiration for her next novel. She brings the same gift for storytelling with illuminating subtext to her debut novel Peregrine Island. Saxton divides her time between New York City and the Berkshires, where she lives with her husband, doges and horses.
