Lancaster Historical Writing Festival: Beth Underdown & Anna Mazzola

  • The Storey Meeting House Lane Lancaster, England, LA1 1TJ United Kingdom (map)

Waterstones presents the Lancaster Historical Writing Festival, celebrating the outstanding range of new historical fiction and non-fiction books with a three-day programme of events across the city centre.

Throughout history women have been persecuted and vilified, tried for being witches and hung for notorious murders. Only in recent years have their stories started to come to light. Join Beth Underdown (The Witchfinder's Sister) and Anna Mazzola (The Unseeing) as they discuss their accomplished debut novels, based on the real-life exploits of infamous witchfinder Matthew Hopkins and his sister Alice and Edgware Road murder suspect Sarah Gale respectively.

Beth and Anna will talk about their books before taking audience questions and signing copies of her novels. The event will last approximately one hour, not including the time taken for the book signing.
