Spinning Silver in September

Join us on September 17th at The Peddler's Daughter to discuss Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik, a loose retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one.  He has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.
