The Winter People

Saturday, September 27th, 2PM to 4PM

Salome Montgomery fears winter—the cold, the snow, the ice, but most of all, the frozen pond she fell through as a child. For eleven years, she has avoided the winter woods, the pond, and the darkness that lurks nearby. Salome discovers she’s a key player in a world she’s tried for years to avoid. At the center of this world is the strange and beautiful Nevin. Cursed with dark secrets and knowledge of the creatures in the woods, he takes Salome's life in a new direction. It’s a direction where she’ll have to decide between her longtime crush, Colton, who could cure her fear of winter. The other choice is Nevin, who, along with an appointed bodyguard, Gareth, protects her from the darkness that swirls in the snowy backdrop.
