Event description

Description

Author talk

Inspired by her debut novels The King’s Witch and The Devil’s Slave, Tracy Borman will transport us back to the turbulent world of the early Stuart court, where King James I waged a war on witches and Catholics alike.

The heroine of the novels is Frances Gorges, daughter of Elizabeth I’s favourite lady in waiting, who finds herself accused of witchcraft and becomes embroiled in the plot to oust James from the throne. Interweaving fact and fiction, Tracy will tell Frances’s story, bringing one of the most dramatic periods in British history vividly to life.


This talk has been organised as part of Richmond Literature Festival: richmondliterature.com
