Reading History at Renaissance Books

Ruth Kozak and I will be reading from our new historical novels at Renaissance Books, 43 -6th Street in New Westminster, on Wednesday, October 15 at 7 p.m. Admission is free and an open mic will follow.

Beginning in Babylon at the time of Alexander the Great’s death in 323 BC, Ruth Kozak’s The Shadow of the Lion follows the journey of the newly appointed joint-kings, Alexander’s half-brother Philip Arridaios and his infant son, Iskander, through Asia Minor and Egypt to Macedon, until the year 310 BC when tragedy marks the end of Alexander’s dynasty.

Set in British India, 1914, Sophie, in Shadow, by Eileen Kernaghan, is a story of spies and terrorist plots, time travel and Himalayan journeys, against the background of a world at war. For Sophie Pritchard, still devastated by the loss of her parents in the Titanic disaster, India proves a dangerously unsettling environment, where past, present and future seem to co-exist.
