Bring the Mediterranean to your living room with Victoria Hislop, whose chronicles of war and romance have made her one of the nation’s most beloved and successful novelists.
When Victoria Hislop first visited the abandoned Greek leprosy colony of Spinalonga, she could not have imagined that it would represent the beginning of her journey to becoming a literary sensation.
An inspired storyteller whose books have sold more than 10 million copies and been translated into 30 languages, she weaves human drama into a tapestry of politics and intrigue, civil strife and international trauma.
Bringing some of the most powerful events of the 20th century to the Anglophone world for the first time, her novels The Thread, The Sunrise, The Island and Those Who Are Loved are a testament to her love for Greece, its history, and its people. As many of us yearn for our island holidays in this time of quarantine and uncertainty, join Victoria for a free livestream with Matthew Stadlen and let her transport you across the Aegean with the power of words.
This event takes place at 6:30pm British Summer Time.
