The Harvard Club of the Palm Beaches
will be discussing (via Zoom)
“The Kitchen House”
by Kathleen Grisson
Monday, February 21, 2022
Told from the perspectives of Belle, the half-white daughter of a tobacco plantation owner, and Lavinia, a young indentured white girl, The Kitchen House is a riveting story of antebellum South. As Lavinia straddles two worlds, she is forced to make a choice – one that will have far-reaching consequences. Suspenseful and beautifully written, The Kitchen House explores the plantation’s social order and raises profound questions about the meaning of family, loyalty, and freedom.
New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Grisson was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada. Her acclaimed sequel, Glory Over Everything: Beyond the Kitchen House, masterfully revisits the characters and themes of her first novel. She currently lives in a renovated plantation tavern in southern Virginia.
