Tickets £10. How far can one push the literary boundaries by inhabiting the minds of historical characters and the lives of revered writers from the past? Two of our most admired authors discuss their imaginative and innovative approaches to writing fiction and biography. Hilary Mantel's new novel, Wolf Hall, takes us behind the scenes during one of the most turbulent periods of British History, the reign of Henry VIII. Ann Wroe's biography, Being Shelley, abandoned the usual conventions of the genre and was widely regarded as an astonishing achievement. Hilary Mantel's books include Giving Up the Ghost and Beyond Black. Ann Wroe has written four previous works of non-fiction. (DeadGoodBooks)
