Joanna Trollope

On Jane Austen

Thursday 13 July, 6.00pm

Theatre Royal

Tickets: £14 from Theatre Royal box office

One of Britain’s best-loved novelists, Joanna Trollope is the author of 20 highly-acclaimed works of fiction. In a writing career that has spanned 40 years, she has been described as one of the most insightful chroniclers and social commentators writing fiction today.

In this talk, Joanna considers Jane Austen’s genius, the economic circumstances of her world and the realities and hardships of her life. She contrasts this to the working lives of the women in her latest novel, City of Friends, which was published earlier this year.
