Thank you to all those who joined us in the stunning setting of Kenilworth Castle for a panel with historian Dr Joanne Paul, author of The House of Dudley; and novelist Natasha Solomons, author of I, Mona Lisa in discussion with bookseller and historian Tamsin Rosewell. There was so much to discuss from the power of art, to the power of a monarch’s favour! Joanne and Natasha gave some really interesting insights into their research and about how they write and read history, from having a narrative voice for non-fiction in The House of Dudley, to creating a ‘voice’ for a famous painting and allowing them to tell their version of history with I, Mona Lisa.

If you would like a signed copy of either The House of Dudley by Dr Joanne Paul or I, Mona Lisa by Natasha Solomons they are available on our signed books page
