Free Press advances Harlan-Haughey’s Robin Hood presentation

The Free Press advanced an online presentation from Sarah Harlan-Haughey, an associate professor of English at the University of Maine, called “Fact, Fiction and Fandom: The Virtual Reality of Late Medieval Rymes of Robin Hood.” The Rockland Public LIbrary will host the lecture at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 12 via Zoom. Harlan-Haughey will introduce the tradition of late medieval “rymes” about Robin Hood and other outlaws and explore how the virtual world of the outlaw tradition overlaid and influenced real life, politics and art in England in the 14th and 15th centuries. Email by 4 p.m. on the day of the webinar to request a Zoom link. For more information, call the library at 207.594.0310.
