Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest
Murder, poison, corruption and nepotism: all perfect ingredients for sensational contemporary storytelling. But they’re also ingredients that made the Borgia family of Italy infamous more than 500 years ago. Bestselling author Sarah Dunant presents a sumptuous, illustrated lecture that reveals the tireless research that went into her new novel, In the Name of the Family, set in Renaissance Italy in the final years of the House of Borgia. You’ll meet the wily, charismatic womanizer Pope Alexander, his sociopathic son Cesare and his daughter Lucrezia, who transforms from “the greatest whore in Rome” to duchess of Ferrara. Dunant slyly shows that history has a knack of repeating itself. Dunant received a standing ovation for her last illustrated lecture at the Writers Fest. Don’t miss this one!
