• One Book One Town 2024 Author Event: Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 pm

    Author Angeline Boulley will speak at the Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:00pm. Register now - space is limited!

    Fairfield Public Library and its community partners are pleased to announce Fairfield’s One Book One Town (OBOT) selection for 2024, Warrior Girl Unearthed by Angeline Boulley.

    In this coming-of-age thriller, Perry Firekeeper-Birch has always known who she is—the laidback twin, the troublemaker, the best fisher on Sugar Island. Her aspirations won’t ever take her far from home, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. But as the rising number of missing Indigenous women in her community starts circling closer, as her family becomes embroiled in a high-profile murder investigation, and as greedy grave robbers seek to profit off what belongs to her Anishinaabe tribe, Perry begins to question everything. Old rivalries, sister secrets, and botched heists cannot—and will not—stop her from uncovering the mystery before the ancestors and missing women are lost forever.
    Copies of Warrior Girl Unearthed and its companion books are available to borrow at either location of Fairfield Public Library and at Pequot Library, or for purchase at the Fairfield University Store.
    One Book One Town and its attendant programs are made possible by the generous support of The Friends of Fairfield Public Library.
