Grant Me the Carving of My Name: Launch event for a Richard III anthology

May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Join four of the authors who have contributed to an anthology of short fiction, inspired by King Richard III, as they launch Grant Me the Carving of My Name published in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK)

A dozen international authors have collaborated on an anthology of short fiction inspired by Richard III, the king who called York ‘home’. Grant Me the Carving of My Name, with a foreword by bestselling historical novelist Philippa Gregory, is being sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK), which aids people with the same spinal condition as King Richard. The book will be officially launched by four of the authors, all locally based (three who write for adults, one for children), promising talks, Q&As, and readings and signings of their work. Everyone is welcome to this free event, but please book.
