Hilary Mantel, ‘A writer at the peak of her powers’ at the Royal Festival Hall

‘Hilary Mantel is one of Britain’s most accomplished, acclaimed and garlanded writers.

Uniquely, her last two novels won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

In this new collection of ten stories, all her gifts of characterisation, observation and intelligence are once again fully on display. With settings ranging from Saudi Arabia to Greece to London, they reveal a great writer at the peak of her powers.

Hilary reads from the collection and is in conversation with James Runcie, Southbank Centre’s Head of Literature and the Spoken Word.’
