Grendel's Mother Reading & Signing: Nov 18

This feminist revision of the Old English epic, Beowulf, traces the life of Brimhild, who weaves peace and conveys culture to the kingdom, until the secret of her birth threatens to tear apart the fragile political stability. This is her story – the tale of Grendel’s Mother, who is no monster. We see the many passages of her life: the brine-baby; the hall-queen; the exiled mere-wife; and the seer.
