11 June 2013

Throughout 2013, The National Archives will host a series of monthly talks to broaden awareness of historical records and their uses for writers.

Each month, a high-profile author will talk about using original records in their writing. Ben Macintyre kick-started the year as part of the Mining the Archives masterclass. Our distinguished speakers include: Tracy Borman, John Guy, Peter Hennessy, and Lucy Worsley.

June's session will be in conversation Dominic Sandbrook, on 11 June 2013 at 14:00. He will discuss his latest book Seasons in the Sun: The Battle for Britain, 1974-1979.

Tickets are free of charge. Email writerofthemonth@nationalarchives.gsi.gov.uk to book your place now.
