Angels & Phantoms: Hilary Mantel's Bring up the Bodies: Margaret Norwich

"In the sequel to her award winning novel Wolf Hall  Hilary Mantel returns to the court of Henry VIII to consider one of the most mystifying and frightening episodes in English history as seen through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell, the blacksmith's boy who is now the King's Chief Minister.  The demise of Anne Boleyn is a story we all know but in this spellbinding account by an author at the height of her powers there is much to surprise, amaze and provoke discussion: please join us!"
