OU English Department professor Rilla Askew will speak about the connection between King Henry VIII and Anne Askew, the heroine of her latest novel, “Prize for the Fire,” at 6:15 p.m. Friday at Norman Public Library Central in the Oklahoma Redbud Room.

Askew defied religious authorities to follow her faith. In the last year of Henry’s reign, their lives touched, which helped shape the English Reformation. “Prize for the Fire” will be available for purchase at the lecture.
