Acclaimed novelist Sarah Dunant, award-winning historians Bettany Hughes and Suzannah Lipscomb will come together for Just a Drop’s third annual lecture at the Royal Geographical society.
The author of Blood and Beauty will join the historians on March 1 for the lecture Secret Lives Exposed: If Walls Could Talk.
It will explore history’s hidden stories, discussing the Pope’s daughter, the private life of Henry VIII and the secrets of Renaissance courtesans.
The discussion will be followed by an Q&A led by Stephen Sackur, Just a Drop patron and BBC HARDTalk presenter.
All proceeds from the evening will go towards Just a Drop, a charity launched in 1998 that works to bring safe water and sanitation to communities around the world.
Fiona Jeffery OBE, chairman and founder of Just a Drop, said: “I’m delighted that Just a Drop is able to host such a prestigious event at the Royal Geographical Society for the third year running, after the success of Danger, Deadlines and Frontlines earlier this year.”
She added: “I’m thrilled that Sarah, Bettany and Suzannah will be joining us in 2018 to reveal the secrets of history’s hidden lives – I’m sure we’re in for an exciting and illuminating evening.”
