This MarloweElizabethan Intrigue Sweeps Halifax

1593. Queen Elizabeth reigns from the throne while two rival spymasters — Sir Robert Cecil and the Earl of Essex — plot from the shadows. Their goal? To control succession upon the aged queen’s death. The man on whom their schemes depend? Christopher Marlowe, a cobbler’s son from Canterbury who has defied expectations and become an accomplished poet and playwright. Now that the plague has closed theatres, Marlowe must resume the work for which he was originally recruited: intelligence and espionage.

Join This Marlowe author Michelle Butler Hallett for a reading and discussion at the Halifax Central Library (Room 301). This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Bookmark.
