<![CDATA[Mary A. Osborne’s new novel recalling the Black Death to launch at Zhou B Art Center on Friday, April 17, 2015]]>Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:59:42 GMThttp://www.lakestreetpress.com/newsevents/-mary-a-osbornes-new-novel-recalling-the-black-death-to-launch-at-zhou-b-art-center-on-friday-april-17-2015Picture
The Zhou B Art Center in Bridgeport will host a pre-release party for Chicago author Mary A. Osborne’s new novel, Alchemy’s Daughter  on Friday, April 17, 2015 from 6 - 9 p.m. The launch will take place in conjunction with the Center’s “Third Fridays” exhibition and open studios event.

Amid current fears surrounding “superbugs” and the Ebola virus, Ms. Osborne, who is a registered nurse, has written a tale that offers a historical perspective on midwifery and the Great Plague of 1348.

Ms. Osborne says, “Europe’s 14th century plague is a reminder of the havoc pandemics can create. As our current supply of antibiotics is becoming more and more ineffective, we need to carefully consider our preparedness to cope with infectious disease.”

In Ms. Osborne’s novel, which appeals to both adults and young adults, seventeen-year-old Santina is determined to follow in the footsteps of the village midwife, who is a suspected witch.  The book won the gold award in the Literary Classics Youth Media Competition. 

Both the launch party and the Zhou B. Art Center’s “Third Fridays”—in which visitors can view current exhibitions and meet working artists in their studios—are free and open to the public.  The launch party will be located on the first floor of the Art Center at 1029 W. 35th St in Chicago, IL.
