Popular historian Jim Gibbons will be coming to the Crete Public Library on Monday, November 6th at 7 p.m. to discuss the life of Elizabeth II, the longest-living and longest-reigning Queen of England. He will discuss her coronation, the impact of the constitutional changes she implemented, the devolution of the United Kingdom, and the loss of her daughter-in-law, Princess Diana. He will explain how the Queen, while both conservative and elegant in dress, is a strong voice over policies in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
