Author Event: Karen Maitland – Talk & Signing
29 Apr 2017
Karen Maitland returns to Lincoln to talk about and sign copies of her latest medieval thriller ‘The Plague Charmer’
Tickets available at £4 from Lindum Books and The Collection box office.
Stokes café will provide a bar for pre-event drinks. Event starts at 7pm.
The Plague Charmer, by Karen Maitland, Queen of the Dark Ages and bestselling author of Company of Liars, will chill and delight fans of The Essex Serpent and Graeme Macrae Burnet's His Bloody Project in equal measure.
1361. An unlucky thirteen years after the Black Death, plague returns to England.
When the sickness spreads from city to village, who stands to lose the most? And who will seize this moment for their own dark ends? The dwarf who talks in riddles? The mother who fears for her children? The wild woman from the sea? Or two lost boys, far away from home?
Pestilence is in the air. But something much darker lurks in the depths.
