Old English? You mean, like Shakespeare and the King James Bible? WRONG! Old English is actually much more similar to what we speak today than Middle English. Surprised? Come to the Marshall Public Library to uncover more surprises!
ISU Ph.D. candidate Jacob L. Thomas will share his passion for the history of the English language and medieval English history on Thursday, November 5, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Reading and understanding Old and Middle English earned Thomas a grant to visit England in May, and he is eager to take you on a merry tour of the fascinating and complex history of the language we speak today.
This program is free and open to all members of the public as part of Marshall Public Library’s ongoing literary series. For more information or if you are interested in facilitating a discussion, please call Amy Campbell at 232-1263 ext. 106.
