Innocent Traitor

Innocent Traitor
Friday, March 16 at 7 PM

Historical expertise marries page-turning fiction in Alison Weir's enthralling novel, Innocent Traitor: A Novel of Lady Jane Grey, breathing new life into one of the most significant and tumultuous periods of the English monarchy. It is the story of Lady Jane Grey — "the Nine Days' Queen" — a fifteen-year-old girl who unwillingly finds herself at the center of the religious and civil unrest that nearly toppled the fabled House of Tudor during the sixteenth century. Alison Weir uses her unmatched skills as a historian to enliven the dynamic characters of this majestic drama.

Burning Bright

Burning Bright
Saturday, March 24 at 3 PM

The author of Girl with a Pearl Earring turns her literary talents to the turbulent last decade of the eighteenth century and the anti-Jacobin scare of 1792. In Burning Bright, Chevalier interweaves the lives of a chairmaker's family who moves from the country to London and become neighbors of the poet and painter William Blake. The book is a brilliant portrait of a time of high social unrest in Britain, as seen through the eyes of residents in one London neighborhood, including Blake himself.
