Byron and the wilder shores of love: Emily Brand and Clement Knox in conversation

Monday 20th April 18:30 at Canterbury - Rose Lane

Emily Brand's The Fall of the House of Byron allows readers to, for the first time, follow the fates of Lord Byron's ancestors over three generations via unfathomable levels of scandal and impropriety.

'A chocolate box full of delicious gothic delights – jump in' – Lucy Worsley

 ‘stranger than fiction, as dark as any gothic drama, the story of the Byron family has cried out for a modern telling. Emily Brand's utterly gripping account of the Byrons' gilded decline into tragedy and scandal is a triumph of detective work and literary skill.’ - Amanda Foreman

 

Knox's Strange Antics, a History of Seduction, ranges from Casanova to feminist liberation, and has been widely praised as both erudite and wildly entertaining.

'big and bold..so much to praise here'- Sunday Times

Waterstones Canterbury are delighted to welcome Emily Brand and Clement Knox in to store to discuss Byron and the wilder shores of love.
