Don't Miss This at Broadmoor Branch library

The RELIC program of LEH started last Thursday evening, 6:30-8:30 pm, at the Broadmoor Library. Drs. White and Lake of LSUS are the expert facilitators for "Elizabeth of England and Her Times". The group will meet each Thursday through May 1.

Dr. White's examination of the early Tudor dynasty and historic conditions surrounding Elizabeth's accession to the throne in 1558 kept me and the large audience riveted as she added myths, tales and her insights about the various characters. Particularly nice for this series is the loan of the four texts related to the course to each of the participants.

The next session, April 3, is titled Years of Hope and Challenge. Dr. White will focus on the dramatic & tragic relationship between Elizabeth and Mary Stewart, as well as Elizabeth's use of the "marriage game" to extend her diplomatic influence. Hope to see you there.
