Jay Ruud author talk and book signing for Fatal Feast

Conway author Jay Ruud brings the world of medieval fantasy to the Faulkner County Library on Tuesday, February 19 at 7:00 PM for a book signing and author talk.   


When an Irish knight dies mysteriously at a banquet she is hosing, Queen Guinevere is charged with murder and faces death at the stake if found guilty.  Her loyal page, Gildas, rushes to the woods to track down Merlin and convince him to take up the investigation and save the queen.  Dr. Ruud is the author of Fatal Feast, a fast-paced murder mystery set in the legendary court of Camelot, imagined as it might have existed in the high Middle Ages, with Sir Gawain, Sir Gareth, and Sir Lancelot in pivotal roles, and the young Gildas, enamored of the queen’s lady-in-waiting- Rosemounde, an unlikely courtly lover focused on saving the queen and impressing his damsel---not necessarily in that order.


Jay Ruud is a professor of English at the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, where he teaches courses in medieval literature.  He has published books on Chaucer, Dante, and Tolkien, and is also the author of an Encyclopedia of Medieval Literature.


All library events are free and open to the public.
