Kierkegaard and pirates converge at Charleston Library Society

Mirror’s Fathom, the first novel by College of Charleston Professor Sheridan Hough, is the story of Tycho Wilhelm Lund, anarchist, pirate, and thief of a legendary mirror.

Tycho a great-nephew of Søren Kierkegaard  is asked to appraise the furniture once belonging to Regine Schlegel, Kierkegaard’s jilted love.    

Ms. Hough will be appearing at the Charleston Library Society on Thursday, November 8, at 6 p.m. to discuss her work that Brett Lott praised as "an elegant, beguiling, moving and extremely intelligent book.  Part mystery and part love story, part history and part philosophy, this is a compelling and rewarding read."

The Society is at 164 King Street.
