The author of twelve bestselling books, Robert Harris never fails to draw a crowd. He will be interviewed about his newly published novel.
1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts – coins, fragments of glass, human bones – which the old parson used to collect.
Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes – about himself, his faith and the history of his world – is tested to destruction.
The author will be interviewed about his new novel before taking questions from the audience, and signing his books.
Tickets £22 (includes a copy of the book worth £20 and a glass of wine or soft drink). A ‘couples’ ticket is available as we appreciate the same household may not want two copies. Couples tickets are £30, which includes a copy of the book worth £20, and two glasses of wine). Book on-line here (no fee). Or call on 01488 683480.
