To mark the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the reformation, Salisbury Cathedral and Salisbury Literary Festival are delighted to present a very special event with bestselling author Philippa Gregory. Speaking in Salisbury’s iconic cathedral, Philippa will look back on this historic time and in particular at the various women involved in reform that she has written about over her illustrious career, including Anne Boleyn, Kateryn Parr and Kathryn of Aragon. The discussion will be supplemented by readings by actors from the relevant novels and there will be an opportunity to buy and get books signed after the event.
