Author talks return to Lincoln with history, mystery and true crime


The latest slate of author talks returns to Lincoln’s Collection museum tonight (Friday 11) with Sharon Bennett Connolly discussing her latest book.

The first talk sees Sharon delve into Silk and the Sword, an immersive book exploring the role women played during the Norman conquest.

This will be followed on Tuesday 15 January by a talk by Diane Setterfield on her new novel Once Upon a River.

On Saturday 16 February, popular crime writer Elly Griffiths returns to discuss The Stone Circle, the latest book in the Norfolk set Dr Ruth Galloway series.

Monday 4 March sees Hallie Rubenhold speak about The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper.

And the season concludes on Friday 15 March, with a talk by novelist Tessa Hadley.

Paul Mason, Visitor Experience Manager at The Collection, said: “We’re 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.

“Elly is always a big favourite with our visitors and Diane and Hallie are both known for having had works adapted for the screen by the BBC, so we would advise people to book in advance to avoid missing out.”
