An Evening with Philippa Gregory
Perhaps best renowned for ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’, the best selling Philippa Gregory is celebrating the launch of her latest book in the Tudor Court Series, in which she has described all of Henry the Eighth’s queens. She visits The Mitchell Library to introduce The Taming of the Queen, a deeply intimate portrayal of the last, Kathryn Parr – a woman who longed for passion, power and education at the court of a medieval killer.
Philippa Gregory – an author of 37 books for adults and children – has pioneered the genre which has become her own: fictional biography, the true story of a real person brought to life with research and verve. This is a great opportunity for fans of her books, historical fiction in general, and those fascintaed by the intrigue and romance of the Tudor court.
Presented by Aye Write! Glasgow’s Book Festival in association with Waterstones.
