An Evening with Charles Fergus

June 23 2021

7:00pm to 8:00pm

Charles Fergus will visit Schlow to discuss his recent book, Nighthawk’s Wing!

Charles Fergus writes mysteries set in Pennsylvania in the Jacksonian Era of the 1830s. He also writes books about nature and wildlife. His deep knowledge of the natural world informs his fiction, letting him invoke a strong sense of place.

He was born and raised in central Pennsylvania. A graduate of Penn State University’s writing program, he has worked as a writer and editor for his entire career. He now lives on an old hill farm in northern Vermont, where he and his wife, the author Nancy Marie Brown, ride their Icelandic horses on dirt roads and trails. He loves to spend time in nature, in all seasons, hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, and watching wildlife. He sings in a hospice chorus, bringing a capella music to people in their last days and final hours. He is one third of an American roots trio called Yestermorn, singing and performing Appalachian, folk, and shape-note songs, including many from the early 1800s.
