Description

Parliamentary archivist and historian Caroline Shenton won the 2013 Political Book of the Year with her hugely-successful debut book "The Day Parliament Burned Down".  Now she has written a sequel, about what happened next - the extraordinary tale of how Britain's most famous building came to be, focussing on Charles Barry - the man who created it against all the odds. Come and hear Caroline talk about the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament and some of the wonderful, hilarious, and tragic stories she uncovered.

Includes wine reception.
