Our Henry Dene talk for May is presented by Dr Kim Fleet. In this talk, crime author Kim Fleet discusses how she fictionalised the dissolution of Hailes Abbey in her time-slip thriller, Holy Blood.
For many people, the Dissolution of the Monasteries conjures up images of abbeys being smashed up and the monks executed. In the majority of cases, however, dissolution was a much quieter, more bureaucratic process. Unfortunately that doesn’t make for exciting reading!
Dr Kim Fleet is the author of four crime novels: Sacred Site, Featherfoot, Paternoster and Holy Blood. A fifth, Devil’s Chimney, will be published in 2020. Sacred Site and Featherfoot are based on her experiences of working in remote Aboriginal communities in Australia. Recently she’s turned to crime closer to home, with a series of books featuring Cheltenham-based private investigator, Eden Grey.
This talk takes place in the Henry Dene Hall on Friday 22 May at 3pm.
Tickets are £7.50 per adult, and £5.00 for under-18s. Tickets include refreshment and can be booked via this link
