Imagining Medieval Women
Local author Tracey Warr returns to The English Library to speak about concluding her trilogy on the medieval Welsh noblewoman, Nest ferch Rhys, and to talk about her next writing project. Her new medieval mystery series is set in 12th-century Toulouse and features a female troubadour who solves murders as a sideline. Tracey’s fiction draws on historical chronicles, old maps, objects in museums, and medieval literature to create vivid fictional worlds.
Tracey Warr was born in London, lived for a time in Wales and is now living near Villefranche-de-Rouergue in France. She was a contemporary art curator and an art history academic, and is currently writing fiction full time. She has published five novels and several books on contemporary art.
Almodis the Peaceweaver – ‘I read the book over a couple of days when I really should have been doing something else.’
The Viking Hostage – ‘Human chess played with lives and land.’
Daughter of the Last King: ‘I could not put this book down from the moment I started it. I practically inhaled the content.’
You can find The English Library open 10-12 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Centre Sociale, 19 Rue Sergent Bories, 12200 Villefranche-de-Rouergue.
