‘What’s to be done with the lost, the dead, but write them into being?’  
Hilary Mantel, Giving Up the Ghost 
Join David Olusoga, Kamila Shamsie and Phllippa Gregory in the stunning surrounds of Hampton Court Palace as part of The Queen's Reading room Festival to celebrate the life, work and legacy of RSL Fellow and multi-award-winning writer, Dame Hilary Mantel. Our speakers will discuss Mantel’s writing and her impact on their own work, as well as her instrumental role within the Royal Society of Literature. A cast of actors including Dame Harriet Walter and Ben Miles will read extracts from some of Hilary Mantel’s most loved literature.
