Talk: The historical novel: knowledge and pleasures

Why do we love historical fiction so much? As part of my stay at the library as April’s writer in residence, I’ll be tracing a brief history of the historical novel, and discussing my own love of historical fiction, literary and popular, which began at school with Winston Graham’s Poldark novels. I’ll also suggest some reasons for the genre’s contemporary appeal.

Tickets available from Gladstone’s library in the new year.
