The Eagle and The Oystercatcher
August 23, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come and meet Holly Bidgood, author of The Eagle and The Oystercatcher.
Her novel is set in the Faroe Islands in April 1940, when two British destroyers
sail into the harbour at Tórshavn. From that point onwards the lives of the
Faroe Islanders are irrevocably altered. Eighteen-year-old Kjartan blames the
war for taking away the last remaining member of his family. At the same
time, he is struggling with intense feelings for his best friend Orri. The Eagle
and The Oystercatcher resonates with evocative descriptions of the bleak
landscape of the Faroe Islands.
