The epic poem "Beowulf", written in Old English, played an important role in Thomas Maltman's All Iowa Reads 2014 book pick, "Little Wolves." Join us as we paint our Old English initials on canvas.
This event is open to the public who pre-register at Spencer Public Library, 712-580-7290.
From the Soho Press website: "Set on the Minnesota prairie in the late 1980's during a drought season that’s pushing family farms to the brink, Little Wolves features the intertwining stories of a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor’s wife (and washed-out scholar of early Anglo-Saxon literature) who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America, Little Wolves weaves together elements of folklore and Norse mythology while being driven by a powerful murder mystery; a page-turning literary triumph."
