Robert Harris talks to Jon Snow about his new novel The Second Sleep

6th September 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£22 – £30

The author of twelve bestselling books, Robert Harris never fails to draw a crowd. He will be interviewed about his newly published novel by Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow. 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. Your ticket includes a copy of the book.
