It’s always a treat to discover an international bestselling author is going to be in your neighbourhood – especially if you live outside of London, where all the publishing shindigs seem to take place. Even better if that author is Barbara Taylor Bradford, who has sold a whopping 88 million books in more than 90 countries and 40 languages. Who better to regale you with tales and writing tips on a chilly March afternoon?
Thanks to the lovely folks at HarperCollins we have five pairs of tickets to give away for an exclusive Q&A event with Barbara – hosted by columnist and Editorial Director of The Sunday Times, Eleanor Mills, – at Harewood House in Yorkshire on Wednesday 25 March 2015 at 6:30pm.Barbara will be talking about her latest book, The Cavendon Women, which tells the story of the Ingham family in 1926. The aftermath of the Great War has left their home facing ruin. Four young women are the ones to shape the future of the house, however, as they change the estate’s future while the roaring twenties burn towards the Great Depression.
The elegant setting of this event, Harewood House, was the inspiration for the stately home Cavendon Hall in Barbara Taylor Bradford’s latest novel, too, and a place that she enjoyed with her mother while she was growing up. We can’t think of a better setting to meet this literary icon. Nor a nicer Mother’s Day gift for a historical fiction fan!
