David Cohen Memorial Lecture

Double Booker prize winner Hilary Mantel delivers the inaugural
Memorial Lecture in honour of our late patron, Dr David Cohen CBE,
whose eponymous literary prize she won in 2013. Billed as the
publishing event of the year, The Mirror and the Light brings to a close
the trilogy which has brought Thomas Cromwell into our lives. Her
brilliant portrayal of the 1530s has won acclaim from historians and
reviewers and made us all experts on the ‘other’ Cromwell.
