Kate Mosse and Friends: Women's Voices Then and Now 

Description: To celebrate the UK publication of her major new historical  novel, The City of Tears, join international No 1 bestselling novelist & playwright Kate Mosse & friends including Jojo Moyes, Sandi Toksvig and other special guests for a spell-binding evening celebrating women’s voices, stories about love and betrayal, family and intrigue, history and landscape, war and loss, courage, revenge and a centuries long feud.

The keenly awaited follow-up to her critically acclaimed Sunday Times number one bestselling The Burning Chambers, The City of Tears is the second heart breaking novel in Kate’s historical adventure series. Set in Languedoc, Paris and Amsterdam, the Joubert family will find themselves in Paris on the Eve of the caught most notorious massacre of the Wars of Religion. On the night of 24 August 1572, many thousands will be murdered, displaced and lost. One of those who goes missing will be a child...

Kate Mosse is a novelist, playwright and non-fiction writer. The author of eight novels and short-story collections – including the multimillion-selling Labyrinth and The Taxidermist’s Daughter, which will open at the Chichester Festival Theatre in September 2020. Her award-winning books have been translated into thirty-seven languages and published in more than forty countries. She is also the Founder Director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction.
