1220 East Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN
Our next book discussion is Tuesday December 13th, 2016, 7:00 pm at the Quatrefoil Library, (1220 East Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN) where we'll be discussing "Hild" by Nicola Griffith.
Our December meeting is also where we set the book list for the following year, so be sure to attend with a list of books you would like to see discussed in 2017.
In seventh-century Britain, small kingdoms are merging, frequently and violently. A new religion is coming ashore; the old gods are struggling, their priests worrying. Hild is the king's youngest niece, and she has a glimmering mind and a natural, noble authority. She will become a fascinating woman and one of the pivotal figures of the Middle Ages: Saint Hilda of Whitby.
Hild is a young woman at the heart of the violence, subtlety, and mysticism of the early Middle Ages―all of it brilliantly and accurately evoked by Nicola Griffith's luminous prose. Working from what little historical record is extant, Griffith has brought a beautiful, brutal world to vivid, absorbing life.
