Local Author Bill Peak
Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 2 pm
Location: Ocean Pines Branch
Local author Bill Peak will read from his book, "The Oblate's Confession." While entirely a work of fiction, the novel’s background is historically accurate: all the kings and queens named really lived, all the political divisions and rivalries described actually existed, and each of the plagues that visit the author’s imagined monastery did in fact ravage that long-ago world. In the midst of a tale that touches the human in all of us, readers of “The Oblate’s Confession” will find themselves treated to a history of the “Dark Ages” unlike anything available today outside of textbooks and original source material. Light refreshments served.
