Chocolat novelist Joanne Harris giving talk at The Collection

Chocolat novelist Joanne Harris is among a group of eight popular authors delivering talks on book genres at The Collection in Lincoln.

Visitor experience manager Paul Mason said: “We are thrilled and delighted once again to have a range of different authors coming to the museum to share their work and experiences with the public.

“The events are always very popular so we would advise people to book in advance so they aren’t disappointed.”

On 19 April, Laura Purcell, Katherine Clements and Beth Underdown will be talking all things gothic, ghostly and historical fiction at the ‘Witches, Wuthering and Women’ event.

Julie Summers, one of the country’s foremost social historians, will be talking about her new novel ‘Our Uninvited Guests’ on 27 April and on 30 April Australian authors Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist will be visiting as part of their UK tour to talk about their latest work, Two Steps Forward.

Joanne will make her return to Lincoln on 24 May to talk about her latest book The Testament of Loki and, on 8 June, Professor Tim Birkhead visits to talk about The Wonderful Mr Willughby: The First True Ornithologist giving an insight into a period of scientific history.

The evening events take place from Thursday 19 April until Friday 8 June.
