HOUSE OF GOLD – A Novel in Five Objects – Illustrated Talk
From Cartier’s Belle Epoque Diamond Butterfly jewel, to the telegram that brought America into the First World War, New York Times bestselling author Natasha Solomons will give an illustrated talk on how she spins historical research into immersive fiction. Her latest novel, House of Gold, began with the discovery of a portrait of her family in the Frankfurt ghetto. Find out how that inspired a story of money, power and a desperate marriage. This promises to be a fascinating evening for lovers of fiction and non-fiction alike – an intelligent mix of historical research and creative writing.
