This year, Thomas Cromwell went to New York. After sell-out seasons in Stratford-on-Avon and the West End, the RSC productions of Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies arrived on Broadway, gathering in more Tony award nominations than any other play. Meanwhile, Hilary Mantel continues work on the final novel in her trilogy. She will read from The Mirror & The Light, talk about her new and accidental trade as playwright, and describe the process of bringing the Tudors to television in a controversial, record-breaking BBC series.

Hilary Mantel’s latest book is a short story collection, The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher. Twice winner of the Man Booker prize for fiction, she has recently been appointed a governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
