Host: Edinburgh International Book Festival
Location: Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4HQ
Speaker: Peter Ackroyd

And he’s doing a grand job. The second part of his History of England sextet arrives late-summer, following up Foundation with Reformation. The later tomes will deal with rebellion, revolution, dominion and innovation.More Information
