Writing History - Author Event

16:30 - 18:30 3 April 2022

The Stables, Kenilworth Castle

Join us in the stunning setting of Kenilworth Castle for a panel with historian Dr Joanne Paul, author of The House of Dudley; and novelist Natasha Solomons, author of I, Mona Lisa in discussion with bookseller and historian Tamsin Rosewell. We’ll be discussing everything from the power of art, to the power of a monarch’s favour – and also looking at how we write and read history, from having a narrative voice for non-fiction, to creating a ‘voice’ for a famous painting and allowing them to tell their version of history.
