Lindsay Adams' "Viper" Reading Nov. 13

In Victorian England, newlywed Lilly moves into a small country estate with her near-stranger husband. After a chance encounter with a snake in her garden, the equilibrium of her life is shattered as she grapples with a pregnancy she didn’t want. Is she the only one that can see the monster that follows her, or is she truly losing her mind? An exploration into the origins of the shadowy mythological persona of Lillith, Lindsay Adams' Viper is inspired by the folklore and apocrypha surrounding the Creation story.
