De Balie, Amsterdam: Kate Mosse on writing women back into history
Date: Thursday 4 April
Venue: De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10, 1017 RR Amsterdam
Description: History books are often about the kings, the generals and the religious leaders, whereas women are written out of it.
One writer who is telling stories of women from the past is British author Kate Mosse, known for her multimillion selling Languedoc Trilogy – Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel – and Gothic fiction. How are authors currently writing women back into the past and present and what responsibility comes with this power?
Together with Kate Mosse and Dutch journalist Brenda Stoter Boscolo, known for her courageous research on the Middle-East and women’s rights, we discuss the telling of stories of women from the past and present, through fiction and non-fiction. How are these writers telling stories and thereby actively creating a new history, each in very different ways?
Tickets: €13 tickets, available online

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.

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.
