Bookmarks presents Charlie Lovett – Book Launch and Celebration
Tuesday, February 28 at 7 p.m. Free Event
St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, 2575 Parkway Drive, Winston-Salem, NC
Set in the fictional English cathedral city of Barchester, Lovett’s latest novel, The Lost Book of the Grail, features Arthur Prescott, a lover of books and ancient manuscripts, who spends his spare time in the cathedral library nurturing his fascination with the Holy Grail. When American Bethany Davis arrives to digitize the medieval manuscripts in the library, Arthur’s old-fashioned sensibilities are challenged, but he is surprised to find in her a fellow lover of not just books but also the grail. The two embark on a search for a lost manuscript that tells the story of the cathedral’s founder and may contain clues about the location of the Holy Grail. The reader is immersed in 1500 years of history as the missing manuscript is followed from Saxon times through invasions by Vikings and Normans, the Reformation, the English Civil War, and even the Nazi blitz. The evening launch will feature music by the choir and actual medieval manuscripts on display.
