Dan Jones 

When: Tue., Sept. 26, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission
English historian Dan Jones has a knack for telling the big stories of history (the War of the Roses, the rise of fall of the Plantagenet family) in a conversational, easy-going manner. His new book, The Templars, attempts to free the soldiers of the feared Crusader-era military order from the centuries of legends, lies and fantasy that have built up around them. The Templars were many things — holy warriors, shrewd bankers and flawed men — but their destruction at the hands of King Philip IV of France had less to do with devil worship and secret conspiracies than it did Philips' massive debts to the Templars. Jones discusses the Order and his book at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 26, at Left Bank Books (399 North Euclid Avenue; Admission is free, but you must buy a copy of The Templars through Left Bank to get in the signing line.
