Politics and Prose with Julie Anderson

January 25 @ 6:30 pm

In an age in which we are all citizen journalists and political commentators on social media and the political blog has found a place in the mainstream media in a way undreamed of thirty years ago, what place does political fiction have?

The power struggles, jealousies and rivalries, or alliances and betrayals of politicians, from Parliament, to White House to Town Hall have always been fodder for the novelist and have often been adapted for the screen.

The online event is hosted by Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Libraries  and their guest is author Julie Anderson, whose well-reviewed mystery thriller Plague treads plague pits and the murky banks of the Tyburn, discusses the future of the ‘political novel’ and the ‘novel about politics’ (which are not, of course, necessarily the same thing) in the twenty-first century.

It’s a free event and registration is via Eventbrite at
