OU English Department professor and noted Oklahoma writer Rilla Askew, author of novels, stories, and nonfiction, will speak about the connection between Henry VIII and Anne Askew, the heroine of Prof. Askew’s latest novel, Prize for the Fire. Anne Askew defied religious authorities, including the king of England, to follow her faith. In the last year of Henry’s reign, their lives touched. The resulting violence helped shape the course of the English Reformation.
Prof. Askew’s latest novel, Prize for the Fire, will be available for purchase at the lecture.
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
This event is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Norman Arts Council Hotel Tax Grant Program and the National Endowment for the Arts.
