So excited to share this quick heads-up: Game of Thrones co-executive producer and writer Bryan Cogman calls Nathan Makaryk’s epic debut novel, Nottingham, “The most pleasurable reading experience I’ve had since first discovering George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.” In this bold reimaging of the Robin Hood legend, with King Richard half a world away fighting for God and personal ambition, his country languishes on the brink of anarchy and six intertwined lives are given voice that history has failed to mention, challenging who really were the true heroes and villains in one of England’s largest shires. A strange and extraordinary tale, Nathan will join us in February as a Special Guest Speaker to tell us all about it and more.
