Join us for the November book club where we will discuss Restoration by Rose Tremain. Shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1989, Rose Tremain’s work of historical fiction follows the trials and tribulations of Englishman Robert Merivel, an aspiring physician during the reign of King Charles II. The narrative follows him from the royal court to London’s seedy underworld as he meets with nobles, courtesans, artists, and other denizens of Restoration society.
Book club will begin with a presentation of materials relating to 17th century medicine, followed by a discussion of the book.
Free and open to all, registration required.
