Robert Scott & Scott Howard
Dec 14 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Robert Scott & Scott Howard will be joining us on December 14th from 1 pm-4 pm.

Prince William County’s inaugural poet laureate, Robert Scott has recently released his seventh novel, “God’s Rough Drafts.” An adventure set 112 years into Northern Virginia’s future, the story will captivate readers of all ages.

Set on the moors of Scotland in the waning months of Arthur’s rule, “Three Days and Two Knights” tells how Sir Alanbart, an impoverished and spineless knight; Heather, an indomitable and irresistible serving maid; Scot, a pagan swordsman of questionable intelligence and sexuality, and Sir Gawain, the legendary romantic hero, form an unlikely alliance to free King Arthur from prison. The catch? They have just three days before the blue moon rises, at which time the red wizard Rabordath will use Arthur’s blood to conjure a dragon that will end a kingdom and set all of Britain aflame.
