Our April 2020 Meeting

   Posted by: Dorothea Preis    in Meetings, NSW Branch News

Our April 2020 MeetingJust a short reminder that the next meeting of the NSW Branch of the Richard III Society will be on 4 April 2020, i.e. the FIRST Saturday of the month instead of the second.  The reason is that our venue, the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts, is closed over the long Easter Weekend.

It will be a Book Club Meeting.  Our first book club meeting took place in June last year and proved a huge success.  We therefore decided to make it an annual feature.

The intention this year is to look more closely at the fascinating women on both sides during Richard’s period.  The committee has approved two books:

  • Philippa Gregory, David Baldwin & Michael Jones, The Women of the Cousins’ War
  • Sarah Gristwood, Blood Sisters

Leslie, who will lead the discussion, assured our members that if they prefer, they can, of course, choose any Ricardian or English History book, fiction or nonfiction, to read instead and share their opinion with us at the meeting.

There still is time to get your reading done and we hope you enjoy our choice as much as we did.

Looking forward to a lively discussion on 4 April 2020!
