Shakespeare Retold with Tracy Chevalier

Fri 9 June, 6.30pm
Running Time: 45 minutes approximately

The author of Girl with the Pearl Earring discusses New Boy, her reworking of Othello, the latest in the Hogarth Shakespeare series. The historical novelist transplants the story to the 1970s playground, where a young black boy arrives at an all-white school and finds himself at the centre of a vicious plot of jealousy, betrayal and revenge.

Tracy Chevalier will be in conversation with David Harewood, exploring how updating Othello to modern times impacts the story and relationships, chaired by Nicolette Jones.

Following the talk, Tracy Chevalier will be signing copies of New Boy in the Bookshop.
