Event Description
Historical novelist Katherine Ashe will discuss the last two books of her acclaimed Montfort series – Montfort: The Revolutionary and Montfort: The Angel With the Sword. She will speak about how Parliament and modern democracy came into being — and what happened afterward to suppress it. The true life story of Simon de Montfort is dramatic, extreme, and the events are often contradictory. The Montfort series provides a vivid telling of the story that is plausible and thoroughly lifelike, a thrilling read for entertainment, and an intriguing speculation for the most devoted historian.
