This event is taking place on Monday 6th June, 7.30pm - 8.30pm, in QUAD.
Tickets are £12 (see www.derbybookfestival.co.uk).

Two leading ex-politicians and commentators of the last thirty years, Ken Livingstone and Matthew Parris, come together for what promises to be a fascinating insight into the world of politics.


How should the Left govern? Ken Livingstone serves up an insider’s account of the Labour Party and its future at a pivotal moment in its history. Having spent years at the head of the Greater London Council, he then served two terms as London Mayor where he battled against privatisation and pollution and went head to head with Boris Johnson. His latest book, Being Red, offers a clear-sighted study of the Left’s possibilities and limitations, with reflections on the Labour Party and its future.

Matthew Parris worked for the Foreign Office and the Conservative Research Department before serving as MP for West Derbyshire. He was The Times’ parliamentary sketchwriter for 13 years and is now a Times columnist and won the Press Awards Political Journalist of the Year 2014. He broadcasts for radio and television and presents BBC Radio 4’s Great Lives. He is also a regular columnist for The Spectator and won the Orwell Prize for his acclaimed autobiography, Chance Witness, published in 2002.

Derby Book Festival: Alison Weir
08/06/2016 - 08/06/2016
Derby Book Festival
The lives of Henry VIII’s queens make for dramatic stories. In her new novel, the first in a series of six, historian and historical novelist Alison Weir tells the poignant story of Katherine of Aragon, the King’s first wife, drawing on new research and keeping closely to the historical record. Was Katherine’s union with Prince Arthur consummated? What happens when a happy royal marriage is overshadowed by dynastic pressures, doubts and the allure of an ambitious woman?

Alison Weir evokes a court peopled by the luminaries of the early Tudor age and the magnificent figure of a young and athletic Henry VIII. They live in a lost world of splendour and brutality, dominated by faith and by momentous religious change. This was Katherine’s world, and we can only understand her properly within its context.

Alison Weir has published 17 history books and five historical novels, selling over 2.7 million books worldwide.

This event will be taking place in QUAD, 7.15-8.30pm
Tickets are priced at £10/£8 each, available from the website: http://www.derbybookfestival.co.uk/whats-on/alison-weir/
