Robert Harris, The Second Sleep In conversation with Dr Harry Sidebottom

5th Sep 19 7:00 PM


Thursday 5th September at 7pm

At The Collegiate Church of St Mary's Old Square, Warwick CV34 4RA

 

Join Robert Harris, author of bestselling novels such as Fatherland, Pompeii and Conclave, as he talks about his new book with Dr Harry Sidebottom, The Second Sleep, which will be published on 5th September. The event will be held on publication day at The Collegiate Church of St Mary, Warwick.


1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts - coins, fragments of glass, human bones - which the old parson used to collect.
Did his obsession with the past lead to his death? As Fairfax is drawn more deeply into the isolated community, everything he believes - about himself, his faith and the history of his world - is tested to destruction.


Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start. Robert will be signing copies of his book after the event. Refreshments will be available to purchase.

From £15.00 includes a copy of the book
