The Mere Wife: Maria Dahvana Headley and Neil Gaiman in conversation

Tuesday 6th November 2018 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Join bestselling author Maria Dahvana Headley (MagoniaAerieQueen of Kings) in conversation with Neil Gaiman* to discuss her new novel The Mere Wife, a 21st century feminist retelling of Beowulf.

To those who live there, Herot Hall is a paradise—a self-sustaining community shielded from the outside world—but to those who live secretly along its periphery, Herot Hall is a fortress. Gren lives with his mother Dana just outside the limits of Herot Hall. A former soldier, Dana didn’t want Gren, didn’t plan Gren, and doesn’t know how she got Gren. But now that she has him, she’s determined to protect him from a world that sees him only as a monster.

Echoing the story and themes of BeowulfThe Mere Wife gives sharp, startling currency to the ancient epic poem. Join us as Headley discusses the themes of the poem and her adaptation in conversation with friend and long-time collaborator Neil Gaiman*.

*Please note, Neil Gaiman will not be signing books at this event.
