Writing Henry

. March 1, 2014.

Sharon Kay Penman, a New York Times bestselling novelist with her 2011 novel Lionheart, will support the sequel, her new novel, King’s Ransom at Nicola’s Books with a discussion, Q & A session and signing. Audiences respond to Penman's skill as a historical novelist; she has an uncanny ability to make historical figures, like King Henry II (the protagonist in Lionheart and King's Ransom), relatable to a modern readership. Penman has read at Nicola's books before—she rolled through on the promotional tour for Lionheart, so her return is a homecoming, of sorts.

King's Ransom goes on sale Saturday, March 8, 4pm. Nicola's Books, Westgate Shopping Center, 2513 Jackson Ave. 734-662-0600. nicolasbooks.com Free
