Journey into the past at Central Library

Posted on 21 June 2012

Central Library is hosting two authors in June and July who will be taking their audiences on a journey into history. Whether you prefer fiction or non-fiction, or perhaps both, there will be something to suit every taste.

Historian and broadcaster Tracy Borman will be talking about Matilda, wife of William the Conqueror, who was an amazingly powerful woman for her time. Tracy Borman’s talk takes place on Sat 30 June, 7pm at Central Library. Her biography of Matilda will be available to purchase on the night.

The second event is with fiction author Katharine McMahon, best known for The Rose of Sebastapol, one of the first Richard and Judy Book Club choices. She will be reading from her new novel Season of Light, set in the time of the French revolution. Meet Katharine on Wednesday 4 July, 7pm at Central Library.

Tickets for both events are priced at £3 (£2 concessions and reading groups) and can be booked at Central Library or Waterstones.

For more information, email or telephone 01733 864280.
