Ahwatukee historical fiction writer Judith Starkston will be at the MCLD Robson Library on Wednesday, November 5 at 10:00 a.m. Judith’s first novel, Hand of Fire received rave reviews from both critics and historical fiction writers. To quote Helen Hollick, editor of Historical Reviews periodical, “What is the difference between a good historical novel and a brilliant one? I suggest you read Judith Starkston’s Hand of Fire and you’ll discover the answer.”
Timewise the story line takes you to the Bronze Age, to Troy and Homer’s “Iliad.” Through the captive heroine Briseis’ eyes, Starkston presents an interpretation of the sometimes daunting classic mythological tale in a captivating manner that makes Hand of Fire more accessible to the everyday reader. Ms. Starkston’s talk is sponsored by the Robson Friends of the Library. Come join us on November 5 and see what your local county library has to offer. The monthly business meeting of the FOL will be held at 9:00 a.m., prior to Ms. Starkston’s presentation.
