May Book: The Snow Child

Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey In May, we’ll be discussing The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. This novel is based on an old European folk tale that has many variants but is usually related to a child emerging from snow (either from a snowman or because a woman swallows a snowflake or because she absorbs the snow from handling snowballs, etc.) and eventually returning to snow, but the fun in reading Ivey’s novel is wondering how she will interpret the fairy tale.

In Washington, D.C., a musical version of The Snow Child is currently being performed at the Arena Stage. Broadway World recently posted a rehearsal performance of one of the songs.
