History Book Group: “After Elizabeth: The Rise of James of Scotland and the Struggle for the Throne of England”

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting five book discussions in April. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.

The History Book Group will meet on the 2nd floor of the library Thurs. April 18 at 3:00 p.m. to discuss Leanda de Lisle’s “After Elizabeth: The Rise of James of Scotland and the Struggle for the Throne of England.” In the dawn of the 17th-century, when Mary Queen of Scots was dead and Elizabeth I grown old, the eyes of the English turned to Mary’s son, James VI of Scotland. Leanda de Lisle’s book focuses on the intense period of raised hopes and dashed expectations between Christmas 1602 and Christmas 1603, during which Elizabeth died, James was crowned, and the ancient enemies of England and Scotland were ruled by one monarch for the first time.
