The Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern’s Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure

October 22, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

$5 – $7


Dr. Mark J. Schenker, Senior Associate Dean and Dean of Academic Affairs, Yale College

Different in several ways from the famous film, the book is rich in character and satire. Set in 1941, and framed cleverly as an “abridged” retelling of a centuries-old tale set in the fabled country of Florin that’s home to “Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passions.” A perfect read for adults during the Museum’s Whimsical Kingdoms event.

Book available in The Shop.
