What to expect at this event
Tracy Borman is Lincolnshire born and bred and well known for her non-fiction (including Elizabeth’s Women, Matilda: Queen of the Conqueror and the Private Lives of the Tudors). Now she takes us back to the Jacobean era with her debut novel, THE KING’S WITCH, about religious tensions and the fatal outcome of one of the most infamous failed acts of revolution in British history: the Gunpowder Plot .
The first in a trilogy of historical novels set at the dramatic endpoint of the Tudor reign and the dangerous start of the Stuart era, the novel introduces heroine Frances Gorges, who becomes endangered by the scheming figures behind the conspiracy of 1605 which sealed the fate of Guy Fawkes and his collaborators.
Tracy is joint Chief Curator for Historic Royal Palaces, the charity that manages Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace, the Banqueting House, Whitehall and Hillsborough Castle. She is also Chief Executive of the Heritage Education Trust, a charity that encourages children to visit and learn from historic properties. She appears regularly on TV and radio, as well as contributing to history magazines, notably BBC History.
