Meet the author Lynne Heinzmann for a book talk and signing of the historical fiction novel, Frozen Voices.
On February 11, 1907, 156 men, women, and children boarded the passenger steamship Larchmont in Providence, Rhode Island, for an overnight cruise to New York City. By the following morning, 137 of them were dead—drowned, frozen, or scalded to death—and the ship sat in the muck at the bottom of the Block Island Sound. Frozen Voices, a work of historical fiction, tells the stories of four people who boarded the ship that night.
Lynne Heinzmann graduated from Fairfield University with a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. Her first novel, Frozen Voices, won the Fairfield Book Prize. In his assessment of the novel, the contest’s judge, Richard Hoffman, senior writer-in-resident at Emerson College, wrote, “It’s an ambitious piece of storytelling with multiple and intersecting points of view and characters that are clearly and indelibly drawn, including Harry Houdini. I was reminded of E.L. Doctorow.”
