The Sarum Seminar and Center for the Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) invite you to join us for a talk and book signing with authors Emma Campion (aka Candace Robb) and Gary Allen Fine.
Campion is a writer and historian with a focus on 14th century Britain. She currently is writing historical novels about medieval women of intriguing reputations. The first of these novels is "The King’s Mistress" (published in July 2010), a novel about Alice Perrers, who was the mistress of King Edward III. Campion is now working on a novel of another 14th century noblewoman, Joan of Kent.
Writing as Candace Robb, she is also the author of the popular Owen Archer mysteries and the Margaret Kerr trilogy.
CASBS Fellow and social psychologist Gary Alan Fine will serve as discussant. Fine is a professor of Sociology at Northwestern University. He is the author of "Difficult Reputations: Collective Memories of the Evil, Inept and Controversial" (2001) and "The Global Grapevine: Why Rumors of Terrorism, Immigration, and Trade Matter" (2010).
