    Join AARP for a live conversation with Delia Owens, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Where the Crawdads Sing, which has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. She’ll discuss her first novel and its upcoming movie adaptation—set to release in theaters July 15—and answer your questions. Moderated by The Girlfriend’s executive editor Shelley Emling.

    About the Novel: For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Yearning to be touched and loved, Kya is drawn to two young men from town, both intrigued by her wild beauty. Each man offers different paths and promises of worlds beyond the marsh—but lies can be told, promises broken. Where the Crawdads Sing is “a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature” (New York Times Book Review).
