About The Event
Join us and Ronald Hutton as he launches Queens of the Wild at Treadwell's. There are drinks, social, a copy of the book for you to have signed -- and a riveting lecture. The talk will dive into the lore of hags, witches and fairy queens, celebrating them -- but also arguing that they are not survivals of pre-Christian deities, but are instead cultural figures who nineteenth-century scholars decided were pagan goddesses. Audience members are invited to participate with questions, and livestream allows long-distance attendees to join in via livechat. At the soiree, the wine will flow, and your books will be personally inscribed. Can't attend? Join on Zoom for a livestream as it happens, or see it on delayed view. Those who can't attend may also pre-order SIGNED COPIES to be posted out to them on 13th May.
