Knitting Between the Lines: Bring Up the Bodies
Join us at the Bailey Cove Library for a fun and entirely casual hour of knitting and conversation. We will meet each month on the 2nd Thurs at noon as a “lunch bunch” group. Bring your lunch, your knitting or crochet, and your sense of humor! Knitting needles, yarn, and encouragement will be provided for beginners. This month, we will discuss "Bring Up the Bodies" by Hilary Mantel.
~~Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice.
At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down. Over three terrifying weeks, Anne is ensnared in a web of conspiracy, while the demure Jane Seymour stands waiting her turn for the poisoned wedding ring. But Anne and her powerful family will not yield without a ferocious struggle. Hilary Mantel's "Bring Up the Bodies" follows the dramatic trial of the queen and her suitors for adultery and treason. To defeat the Boleyns, Cromwell must ally with his natural enemies, the papist aristocracy. What price will he pay for Anne's head?
