About this event

'Live' In Person Event

Join us for an evening with Annie Garthwaite as she talks about her breathtaking debut novel Cecily, which reimagines the life of Cecily Neville, Duchess of York – a mother, wife and shrewd political player in the the Wars of the Roses.

'Rebellion?'

The word is a spark. They can start a fire with it, or smother it in their fingertips.

She chooses to start a fire.

You are born high, but marry a traitor's son. You bear him twelve children, carry his cause and bury his past. You play the game, against enemies who wish you ashes. Slowly, you rise.

You are Cecily.

But when the king who governs you proves unfit, what then? Loyalty or treason - death may follow both. The board is set. Time to make your first move.

Ludlow Castle is where Cecily called home, where she raised her children, made her plans and, on one fateful day, faced down an army alone!

Told through the eyes of its greatest unknown protagonist, this astonishing debut plunges you into the closed bedchambers and bloody battlefields of the first days of the Wars of the Roses, a war as women fight it.

Cecily is published on 29th July and is our Book of the Month for August. We're delighted to welcome Annie to Booka as we return to hosting 'in-person' events.
