The October 7, 2021

selection are the Early Ballads of Robin Hood.

We're taking a break from Ancient texts for a moment to look at one of literature's most famous characters.

Robin Hood is a folk hero who has consistently appeared in stories for hundreds of years.  We'll be looking over the ballads from AD 1400 - 1600 which are called the "Early Ballads".  The character of Robin Hood, however, is older than this and still has new stories being written about him.
You're welcome and encouraged to watch any of the many Robin Hood movies as a way to see the latest iteration of this classic folk hero.

The BC Book Club meets the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM

Join us for in-depth discussions of the greatest literature from the BC years.
