Unreal Reads: Spear by Nicola Griffith

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM


The Unreal Reads fiction book club will meet a week early, on June 27, due to the July 4 holiday. We’ll discuss Nicola Griffith's novella Spear, a queer Arthurian legend retelling. Copies available at the Brighton Branch front desk while supplies last.

About the book:

The girl knows she has a destiny before she even knows her name. She grows up in the wild, in a cave with her mother, but visions of a faraway lake come to her on the spring breeze, and when she hears a traveler speak of Artos, king of Caer Leon, she knows that her future lies at his court.

And so, brimming with magic and eager to test her strength, she breaks her covenant with her mother and, with a broken hunting spear and mended armor, rides on a bony gelding to Caer Leon. On her adventures she will meet great knights and steal the hearts of beautiful women. She will fight warriors and sorcerers. And she will find her love, and the lake, and her fate.
