Sarah Dunant : The Borgias, Blood & Beauty in the Music Room at the Pavilion

City Books Event
Sarah Dunant : Blood & Beauty in the Music Room at the Royal Pavilion

Blood, beauty, power, corruption, sex, poison. Sarah Dunant – acclaimed novelist of the Italian Renaissance era – turns her hand to the most notorious family of the period: the Borgias.

In Sarah Dunant’s epic new novel, the Borgias step out of the shadows. Cesare Borgia, his father’s most lethal, but increasingly unstable, weapon warms to no one except his inner circle and his beloved sister, Lucrezia. His brother Juan Borgia, should make a good marriage but sex and violence follow him wherever he goes..

The third son, little Jofré Borgia, is willing to please but is he too young to be effective? Then there is Lucrezia. History has been cruellest of all to her. Synonymous with poison, incest and lustfulness, she is the Borgias’ most irresistible pawn.

Internationally bestselling writer Sarah Dunant is famous for her wonderful Italian historical novels:‘The Birth of Venus’, ‘In the Company of the Courtesan‘ and ‘Sacred Hearts’.

Talk followed by a glass of wine and book signing in the Banqueting Room. Further drinks afterwards.

Tickets £10, please buy your own in advance.

    Hi everybody,we should probably try to get there for 6.45pm if poss, since it actually starts at 7pm. I'll be outside then. Sorry for the delay in mentioning this, the ball organisation/promotion is taking up all the spare time at the moment. Best Wishes Clive
