Historical Fiction Night

Two shows for the price of one! A panel of 4 fabulous Historical Fiction authors will fight their corners in our ‘My Era is Better Than Yours’ challenge – Catrin Kean arguing for The Seventies; E. M. Powell for Plantagenet Power; Kate Innes for The Minoans; and Sarah Woodbury for the Life and Times of Llywelyn the Last.

Then stay with us as we chat with Alis Hawkins about her 14th century mysteries, her Teifi Valley Coroner series set in West Wales during the 1850s, as well as her 2023 novel, A Bitter Remedy – and its much-anticipated sequel, The Skeleton Army, both set in Oxford during the 1880s at the dawn of the women’s college movement. Alis Hawkins is an organiser of the Gŵyl Crime Cymru Festival – a national and international festival celebrating great crime writing. Prepare to be amazed!
