History Reading Group

The next meeting of the Dromore Cathedral History Reading Group will take place on Monday 20 August 2018 at 7. 30 pm in The Clayton Hall.

 

The book that the groupĀ  selected to read, and which will be discussed and analysed at this meeting is –

 

The White King – Charles I – Traitor, Murderer, Martyr by Leanda de Lisle

 

This is a 2018 publication which is founded on previously unseen royal manuscripts. The author uncovers a King who was principled and brave but who was also fatally blinkered. It is a tragic story of populist politicians and religious war, of a new media and the reshaping of nations.

 

Light refreshments will be provided and, in keeping with the practice of the group, will be based on the time and setting of the book selected.

 

All are very welcome to attend and there will be a not often presented opportunity to enjoy light bites based on 17th century English cuisine!
