We are delighted that Phillipa Stockley, twice Booker nominated novelist, columnist, art and costume historian will join us to share some of her wide-ranging interests. Her talk with the intriguing title of Creative Settings in Historical Fiction will focus on creating the settings of an historical novel including its background architecture, paintings, drawings and costume.
To illustrate her approach, in addition to displaying contemporary paintings and images, she will give a short reading from her novel A Factory of Cunning, published by Little, Brown, her 18th century epistolary sequel to Les Liasions Dangereeuses, set in England in 1783. She will introduce her new novel which is set largely in Paris in the 1920s.
