Join Griffin Books to welcome debut author Annie Garthwaite to Penarth for one of our classic cream tea events.

Annie's book Cecily is a vivid, breath-taking historical novel that reimagines the life of Cecily, Duchess of York – a mother, wife and shrewd political player in the Wars of the Roses.

'Rebellion?'The word is a spark. They can start a fire with it, or smother it in their fingertips. She chooses to start a fire.

You are born high, but marry a traitor's son. You bear him twelve children, carry his cause and bury his past. You play the game, against enemies who wish you ashes.

Slowly, you rise. You are Cecily. But when the king who governs you proves unfit, what then? Loyalty or treason - death may follow both.

The board is set. Time to make your first move. Told through the eyes of its greatest unknown protagonist, this astonishing debut plunges you into the closed bedchambers and bloody battlefields of the first days of the Wars of the Roses, a war as women fight it.  

Tuesday 5 October
3.30pm | All Saints Gallery, Penarth
Tickets: £15 including a signed, hardback copy of Cecily and a delicious cream tea
