Dame Hilary Mantel, two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize for her best-selling novel Wolf Hall and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies, is currently at work on the third installment of the Thomas Cromwell Trilogy, The Mirror & the Light. In the home of Hans Holbein’s iconic portraits of rivals Thomas Cromwell and Thomas More, she will discuss the concept, research, and writing of the novels, their adaptation for stage and screen, and the historical figures they so vividly bring to life.
