Winchester Discovery Centre 

Join us for a conversational Meet the Authors special with Alison Weir in conversation with interviewer Rebecca Fletcher, discussing Katheryn Howard: The Tainted Queen  

A naive girl, thrust forward by her ambitious family. A pretty girl, who has captured the heart of a king. She sings, she dances, she delights in the pleasures of being queen. The King tells the world she is a rose without a thorn. He extols her beauty and her virtue. But Katheryn has a past of which Henry knows nothing. It comes back increasingly to haunt her, even as she courts danger yet again.
Katheryn Howard – the fifth of Henry’s queens. Alison Weir relates one of the saddest chapters in English history. Those who gather roses should beware the thorns.
 
Alison Weir is the top-selling female historian in the United Kingdom, and has sold over 2.7 million books worldwide. She has published eighteen history books, including Elizabeth the Queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, The Lady in the Tower and Elizabeth of York, and seven historical novels.
