To Catch a King - Charles Spencer

Starting on October 03, 4:30 pm

Join Charles Spencer as he talks about his latest book, To Catch a King, a fast-paced adventure story of young Charles II running for his life, a vast price on his head, to escape the men who had killed his father and wanted him – and all traces of monarchy in Britain – dead.

In this gripping, action-packed, true story, Charles Spencer uses Pepys’ account and many others to retell an epic tale. Charles II never forgot the particular kindness of his Catholic helpers, who faced certain death if caught. Their patchwork of hiding places had evolved in the face of lethal persecution since the Reformation by royal, Protestant forces; but, ironically, now in the 1650s, they saved the life of a King.
