Award-winning author Rachel Urquhart will give a reading of her recently published novel The Visionist. The story is set in 1840s New England, in and around a fictional Shaker community that is in the throes of a religious revival. It is the "Era of Manifestations" and teenage believers up and down the East coast are falling into trance states and speaking in tongues. Considered by their fellow Shakers to be holy messengers, the girls are exalted as “Visionists,” hence the book's title. After the reading, chief curator Michael Komanecky will facilitate a question-and-answer session with the author. Urquhart will also be available after to sign books.
