The Rectory Lane Cemetery, along with Berkhamsted Town Hall, is a venue for the inaugural BerkoFest Book Festival on 12 May (09.30 – 18.00).
There are some brilliant authors appearing at both locations – for both adults and children – but the Friends of St Peter’s are particularly pleased to host Katharine McMahon, a historical novelist (author of 10 novels, one of which The Rose of Sebastopol was a Richard and Judy Book Club choice).
Katharine will be in conversation with BLHMS’s own Janice Boakes, discussing her passion for featuring strong women in her novels based on accurate historical research. As well as resonating with our own Remarkable Women buried in the Cemetery, Katharine’s novels are located nearby (The Crimson Rooms in Chesham and The Hour of Separation in Watford), and are set in wartime periods – so lots of common ground with the co-author of BLHMS’s Berkhamsted in WW1. It should be a great session (15.00 – 15.45 at the Cemetery) – do come along! Click here for more information.
