Knights, ladies, castles – these are often the popular images of the Middle Ages. But the reality of life then was actually much harsher, and more interesting. Step back to life in another time with this illustrated talk with medieval expert Dr Carmel Bendon at Orange City Library on Wednesday 29 August at 5.30pm. Please book your place online through eventbrite or call the Library on 6393 8132.
Dr Bendon is also concentrating on writing fiction. Grasping at Water is her first novel and she will also talk about this book and its marvellous mix of mystery, history and discovery that will prompt you to wonder about the way you see life.
