Author Charlie Lovett (The Lost Book of the Grail) discusses his newest book and its tale of bibliophiles, ancient manuscripts, an English Cathedral, and a competition between preserving ancient manuscripts versus digitizing them.
Why should you attend?
“Lovett’s unique work combines literary and historical research with classic elements of cozy mysteries, classic love stories, and exciting adventure tales to create a true genre-blending masterpiece. At once funny, heartwarming, and suspenseful, The Lost Book of the Grail has something for every kind of reader, and every kind of book-lover, alike.” —Bustle
“[The Lost Book of the Grail] blends romance, history, booknerdom, and questions about faith and religion into a literary mystery that’s not only incredibly fun but super smart. . . . If your idea of a good time is sifting through the shelves of an old library, this book will speak to your heart.” —Book Riot’s Best Books of 2017
“A fast-paced adventure into the world of ancient manuscripts. I enjoyed it immensely.”—John Grisham
