Event Navigation

Whether fiction or non-fiction, history is enjoying a boom in books.

Clapham Writers curate a rich programme of author talks and panel discussions. Three hugely successful writers discuss their attitude to fact, to fiction and the part imagination plays in reconstructing the past. Chaired by local author Julie Anderson, our lineup is:

Local author, Bafta-winning documentary maker and WWII specialist Simon Berthon, dubbed by The Telegraph as a ‘formidable Second World War historian’.

Tudor novelist Elizabeth Fremantle, whose Girl in a Glass Tower is a Times Book of the Year.

Robin Blake, whose Cragg & Fidelis series is a brilliant recreation of eighteenth-century life and death.
