RA Festival of Ideas, Rewriting the past: authors Sarah Dunant and Kate Mosse
Date: Saturday 4 May
Venue: The Benjamin West Lecture Theatre, Burlington Gardens, Royal Academy of Arts, London W1J 0BD
Description: Acclaimed historical novelists Sarah Dunant and Kate Mosse discuss how the past can shed light on the present.
Can historical fiction reveal a greater truth than history itself; how do you connect a personal story with the collective past; and what can novelists reveal that eludes historians? Two of the UK’s best-selling historical novelists Sarah Dunant, the author of several novels set in Renaissance Italy that explore women’s lives through art, sex and religion, and Kate Mosse, the author of the multimillion-selling Languedoc Trilogy, discuss their very different approaches to their exploration of the past.
This event will be chaired by broadcaster and journalist Alex Clark.
Tickets: £15 (£9), available online or call the box office on 020 7300 8090
