Kirstin Downey - Isabella: The Warrior Queen ♦

Friday, October 31, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Part of a Pulitzer-winning team during her many years at The Washington Post, Downey follows her acclaimed biography of Frances Perkins, The Woman Behind the New Deal, with this compelling portrait of one of history’s most complex leaders. Isabella of Castile (1451-1504) modeled herself on Joan of Arc, but she was hardly a Saint; she unified a country, but expelled its non-Christian people. She sponsored Columbus’s voyages but empowered the Spanish Inquisition. (Nan A. Talese)
