Pop along to Kirkdale Bookshop on 28th September 7:30pm for a talk by Judith Barrett – mainly about the historical background to her novel, Out of the Fire (written as Millie Pearson), but also, with a nod to Hilary Mantel, about the ethics of raiding history for plot and character.
The events that took place in England between September 1189 and March 1190 are grim, and all too relevant to our own time – but you don’t need to have read the book to enjoy the talk, and there’ll be a glass of wine.
