We are very excited about our forthcoming event – ‘An Evening with Victoria Hislop in Conversation with Victoria Schofield’. As the evenings start to draw in, enjoy a Mediterranean inspired evening with wine, canapés and conversation.
Victoria Hislop is the bestselling author of ‘The Island’ and ‘The Sunrise’. Inspired by a visit to Spinalonga, the abandoned Greek leprosy colony, Victoria Hislop wrote 'The Island' in 2005. It became an international bestseller and a 26-part Greek TV series. She was named Newcomer of the Year at the British Book Awards and was winner of the Richard & Judy Summer Read competition.
Her affection for the Mediterranean took her to Spain, which inspired her second bestseller ‘The Return’, and she returned to Greece to tell the turbulent tale of Thessaloniki in ‘The Thread’, shortlisted for a British Book Award and confirming her reputation as an inspirational storyteller. ‘The Sunrise’, a Sunday Times Number One bestseller about the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, was published to widespread acclaim in 2014. Victoria Hislop's latest book, ‘Cartes Postales from Greece’, is fiction illustrated with photographs. It was a Sunday Times bestseller and was one of the biggest-selling books of 2016.
