Debuting her new history book, author and historian Lauren Johnson will speak on Henry VI and the history of the period before signing her book and a Q&A.
Why a book on Henry VI? We'll let Lauren explain:
"For my money, he’s one of the most intriguing and appealing medieval kings going. I mean, he was a terrible, TERRIBLE king but he’s one of the few early rulers you can imagine actually quite liking if you met them. He liked peace, his favourite oath was ‘Forsooth and forsooth’ and frankly, if you appreciate a troubled family dynamic, Henry VI had it going on: he spent his entire childhood being the arbitrator in fights between ALL HIS UNCLES ALL THE TIME."
