Humanities West Book Discussion: An Intimate History of the Black Death, by John Kelly
Humanities West Book Discussion: The Great Mortality: An Intimate History of the Black Death, the Most Devastating Plague in All the World by John Kelly
A book that chronicles one of the worst human disasters in recorded history shouldn't be so entertaining, but Kelly effectively illuminates the unwashed details of medieval life that contributed to so many of our underlying cultural fears. Lynn Harris will moderate the discussion. The author will not be present.
