For anyone else, writing chart-topping literary blockbusters would be enough to fill their days. Not for Kate Mosse, who busies herself between bestselling novels by penning plays and non-fiction, heading up the Orange prize and co-directing the Chichester Writing Festival. Tonight she pauses for breath to talk about her new novel, Citadel, where history, mystery and Nazis collide in the finale to her thrilling Languedoc trilogy. So book yourself a seat, and prepare to be on the edge of it.
Kate will be in conversation with the Literary Director of the Southbank James Runcie.
