Book signing with author Ursula Keierleber

Ursula Keierleber will be signing her books, Pre-Christian beliefs of the Germanic peoples.

The author tells how pagan beliefs have been represented and misinterpreted and throws light on the nature of pre-Christian beliefs, giving definitions of characters and places in Nordic mythology. The book stresses both the possibilities and the difficulties of investigating the lost religious beliefs of Northern Europe.
