October 29th at 6:30 | Tudor London, presented by Mary Lawrence

Join Maine author Mary Lawrence for a fascinating presentation on Tudor London and her work, the Bianca Goddard historical mystery series.

This popular series is set during the final years of King Henry VIII’s reign and features the daughter of an infamous alchemist. Bianca lives in seedy Southwark across the river Thames from London and survives by creating and selling medicines. Along the way, Bianca gets involved in solving murders using her knowledge of alchemy gleaned from years assisting her father.

The first three books, “The Alchemist’s Daughter,” “Death of an Alchemist,” and “Death at St. Vedast” are all available to borrow from the library. The fourth book in the series, “The Alchemist of Lost Souls,” will be out in May 2019.
