Cancelled Nicola Griffith

We regret that this event has been cancelled due to the author's ill-health.



In this sweeping coming-of-age epic, award-winning British writer Nicola Griffith brings both her exquisite storytelling skills and her feminist lens to her first work of historical fiction. Plunging readers into the dense forests and treacherous feudal alliances of Medieval England, Griffith begins the story as Hild, the six-year-old seer and consiglieri, when she is introduced to her uncle, the ruthless King Edwin of Northumbria. Readers follow Hild as she rises in prominence, becoming a pivotal figure in the conversion of England to Christianity.
