Where the Crawdads Sing

From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya (Daisy Edgar-Jones, FX’s Under the Banner of Heaven), an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.

Head over to one of our partner bookstores and pick up a copy of Where the Crawdads Sing today! Our community partners include: The Village Bookstore in Pleasantville, Scattered Books in Chappaqua, and Hudson Valley Books for Humanity in Ossining.
