God Save the Queens July 9th at 6:30pm at Cook County Higher Education

On Wednesday, September 7, 2016, the fourth annual Tea at the Naniboujou Lodge will be sponsored by Cook County Higher Education. Each Tea has featured Dr. Karen I. Halbersleben leading attendees through an exploration of interesting aspects of English Royal history since the Norman Conquest of 1066.

If you missed any of Karen's three previous speeches and would like to hear what you missed, or if you enjoyed any of the speeches so much that you'd like to hear it again, here is your chance! Karen will reprise one speech every month this summer, leading up to this year's Tea on September 7th.

July 9th: “God Save the Queens” examines the fascinating stories of the six women who have ruled England in their own right: the two Elizabeths, the two Marys, Anne, and Victoria. 6:30pm July 9th at Cook County Higher Education!

The presentations lasts approximately 40 minutes and will be followed by Q and A.

Donations of $10 are appreciated. These funds will go to support the work of Cook County Higher Education. You can pay online or pay at the door.
