Novelist Beth Underdown looks at Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. An award-winning novel, recently adapted for TV, it makes a leading fictional protagonist of Thomas Cromwell, the chief minister to Henry VIII who oversaw the break with Rome and the dissolution of the monasteries. Expect an open discussion from the start: you can either read the book ahead of the event, or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
