Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information


Event Name:History Book Group
Event Type(s):Community Event
Description:The History Book Group will discuss Barbara Tuchman’s “The Distant Mirror” at 6:30 p.m. Thurs. Dec. 20th on the 2nd floor of the library. The fourteenth century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering age of crusades, cathedrals, and chivalry; on the other, a world plunged into chaos and spiritual agony. Barbara Tuchman examines not only the rhythms of history but the texture of domestic life in this time: what childhood was like, what marriage meant, and how money, taxes, and war dominated the lives of serf, noble, and clergy alike.
