Kate Mosse - Legends, Folklore and Taxidermy

Tue 10/05/16 7:30 pm

The novelist Kate Mosse is the speaker at the May meeting of the Hampshire Writers’ Society on Tuesday, 10th May, at 7.30 p.m., in St Edburga Building, Room 303 (please note this change of venue).

Kate is best known for her 2005 novel 'Labyrinth'; in addition, her most recent work 'The Taxidermist’s Daughter', from 2014, has also been a bestseller and is currently being made into a film. Interrupting her work on this latter project, Kate comes to Winchester to talk about some of the key components of her historical, supernatural and Gothic fiction, namely legends, folklore and, yes, taxidermy – herself getting under the skin of the writing animal.

Please note: David Nicholls, author of 'One Day' and 'Us', has provisionally been advertised as the speaker at the June meeting of the Hampshire Writers’ Society.
Despite the fact that David, originally from Chandler’s Ford, really is a Hampshire writer, he will be in Japan in June. He is confirmed, however, as the speaker at the launch of the HWS 2016/17 season, in September. Apologies for any disappointment; watch this space for details of the HWS meeting in June.
