The Friends of the Library Local Author Series features Sam Thomas, author of The Midwife's Tale.
It's 1644, and Parliament's armies have risen against the King and laid siege to the city of York. Even as the city suffers at the rebels' hands, midwife Bridget Hodgson becomes embroiled in a different sort of rebellion. One of Bridget's friends, Esther Cooper, has been convicted of murdering her husband. Convinced that her friend is innocent, Bridget sets out to find the real killer.
Sam Thomas teaches history at University School, an independent day school outside Cleveland, Ohio. Before coming to United States he taught at the college level for seven years, and received research grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Newberry Library, and the British Academy.
The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and book signing. Book signing opportunity. Refreshments will be served.
