Book talk: Make the Spanish Inquisition come alive
Sept. 9, the Park City History Book Club goes back in time to the Spanish Inquisition, concentrating on the political atmosphere in which the Inquisition took place and its ultimate effects on Spain and Europe. Ferdinand and Isabella, sponsors of Columbus’ journey to the New World, decided to rid Spain of both Moslems and Jews, touching off the Inquisition. Our October meeting will continue the theme, with a book and discussion of the Inquisition as it effected the Americas. The recommended book for Sept. 9 is "The Spanish Inquisition, a History," by Joseph Perez and Janet Lloyd, but if you read a different title about the subject, please bring your findings and comments to our discussion. Everyone is invited to come join the discussion at the Park City Library on Sept. 9 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Park City Library and Education Center, 1255 Park Avenue.
