Winter is cold in Butler, Pennsylvania. The characters in O’Nan’s atmospheric novel interact like snowflakes: in a swirl of love and pain and coincidence. At the center is a boy named Arthur, whose parents’ marriage is collapsing and whose former babysitter is murdered. Last year the book became a Hollywood film starring Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale. In this very special event, the John Adams Institute hosted author O’Nan and presented the Dutch première of the film.
