The inaugural Lightbox Literary Festival 2017 runs from Thurs 20 April - Sun 23 April and it promises history, poetry, Austen, Shakespeare and much more all packed into one event.
Join renowned historian and novelist Alison Weir for a fascinating talk about her brand new book ‘Anne Boleyn, A King’s Obsession’. Part of the ‘Six Tudor Queens’ series’ this latest novel tells the story of Anne Boleyn, an extraordinary young woman who changed the course of history.
Fresh from the sophisticated palaces of Burgundy and France, Anne draws attention at the English court, embracing the play of courtly love. But when the King commands, nothing is ever a game. She has a spirit worthy of a crown – and a crown is what she seeks. And so she embarks on her perilous course, which will plunge a kingdom into turmoil.
The Lightbox is delighted that it will be stocking advance copies of Alison’s new book ahead of its official publication (on 16 May 2017) in the Literary Festival pop-up book shop.
Advance booking required. The talk will run from approximately 7.00pm - 8.00pm. The Lightbox will be open from 6.30pm for guests to enjoy their complimentary drink and browse in the pop-up bookshop.
