The Thief’s Daughter: Victoria Cornwall +Free Speech

15/05/2017 @ 15:30 - 17:30

Free

Eighteenth-century Cornwall is crippled by debt and poverty, while the gibbet casts a shadow of fear over the land. Yet, when night falls, free traders swarm onto the beaches and smuggling prospers.
Terrified by a thief-taker’s warning as a child, Jenna has resolved to be good. When her brother, Silas, asks for her help to pay his creditors, Jenna feels unable to refuse and finds herself entering the dangerous world of the smuggling trade.
Victoria Cornwall will read from her new book and talk about her approach to publishing. After an interval there will be a Free Speech session.
