Books and Brews at Foundation Brewing & Pizza

Thursday, April 11, 2024 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Heard the news? We've partnered with Foundation Brewing & Pizza for their first-ever Brewery Book Club! Each book that's picked will be paired with one of their beers for a discussion happening every 2nd Thursday of each month. The next meeting will be on Thursday, April 11th at 6 PM. Foundation will be discussing ONCE THERE WERE WOLVES by Charlotte McConaghy.

From the author of the beloved national bestseller Migrations, a #1 IndieNext pick, a gorgeous and pulse-pounding new novel set in the wild Scottish Highlands

Inti Flynn arrives in Scotland with her twin sister, Aggie, to lead a team of biologists tasked with reintroducing fourteen gray wolves into the remote Highlands. She hopes to heal not only the dying landscape, but Aggie, too, unmade by the terrible secrets that drove the sisters out of Alaska.

Inti is not the woman she once was, either, changed by the harm she’s witnessed—inflicted by humans on both the wild and each other. Yet as the wolves surprise everyone by thriving, Inti begins to let her guard down, even opening herself up to the possibility of love. But when a farmer is mauled to death, Inti knows where the town will lay blame. Unable to accept her wolves could be responsible, Inti makes a reckless decision to protect them. But if the wolves didn’t make the kill, then is something more sinister at play?

Once There Were Wolves is the unforgettable story of a woman desperate to save the creatures she loves—if she isn’t consumed by a wild that was once her refuge.
