Our events programme for the New Year kicks off with what promises to be a poignant, very personal evening with novelist and biographer Nicholas Shakespeare. He will be talking about his most recent book ‘Priscilla: Hidden Life of an Englishwoman in Wartime France’ The book has garnered fantastic reviews and featured in many ‘Books of the Year’ listings. This biography of his late aunt Vicomtesse Priscilla Doynel de la Sausserie raises a number of difficult questions about her relationship with the Gestapo. The story is gripping, reading like a novel, but it is the authors search for the truth behind his flawed relative that is most compelling.
Nicholas Shakespeare is with us on Tuesday January 14th at 7pm. Tickets cost £3 and are available from our Customer Service Desk in the shop; by telephoning 01865 333623 or by email from firstname.lastname@example.org
