The Second Sleep

Venue: St Peter’s Church
Time: 4pm
Tickets: £20 inc. a signed discounted book, or £25 for two people inc. a signed discounted book.

We are delighted to welcome one of the country’s biggest-selling writers. Author of twelve acclaimed novels including the Cicero Trilogy, Fatherland, Enigma, Archangel, Pompeii, The Ghost, An Officer and A Spy – which won four prizes including the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction – and most recently, Munich, Robert Harris will be talking about his gripping new thriller set in a remote Exmoor village in 1468.

A young priest arrives to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts which the old parson used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? Fairfax becomes determined to discover the truth.

Robert Harris will be signing books after his talk at St Peter’s Church.
