- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
Interred with Their Bones by Jennifer Lee Carrell has it all. The library has the book, ebook, and audiobook versions! Our hero Kate Stanley is on the track of a long-lost Shakespeare play. Who will get it first? Kate? The killers? Which set of killers? In the course of this tale of derring-do, we globetrot from England to Harvard to Washington DC to Spain to the US Southwest.
While the bulk of the tale takes place in the present, two other time periods are covered: early 1600s England, where we meet a young playwright caught up in a romantic triangle at King James' Court. Guess who? And later on, in the great American Wild West of the late 1800s, we catch up with a few more colorful characters, miners and adventurers and con artists, setting the stage for the web of intrigue that Kate Stanley and company face in the present.
As an added benefit, author Jennifer Lee Carrell has a knack for passing on Shakespearean information, and yes, trivia, in a fun, exciting, give-me-more manner. Who knew that a Mexican War lieutenant by the name of Ulysses S. Grant, sans beard, played Desdemona?
Altogether, this is a rollicking, page-turning adventure. Enjoy!
