Lingering Identities: The Huguenot Past
ST PETER'S METHODIST CHURCH HALL
International bestselling author Louis De Bernieres (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin) discusses the influence of the Huguenots exodus of the massacre.
International bestselling author Louis De Bernieres discusses the influence and afterlife the Huguenots exodus of the massacre has on his personal, and our national, heritage and identity.
This talk will be conducted by best-selling author Louis de Bernieres and newsreader, Jan Leeming.
Louis de Bernieres is the well-known author of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Among his many passionate interests are music, family and his colourful Huguenot ancestors – the family name is listed in Canterbury Cathedral’s Eglise Franciase.
Jan Leeming is best known for presenting BBC News. She now lives in Kent, and is, among other things, an Assistant Cathedral Guide. She too has French ancestry; the Pettet family has been traced back to 1560 at Coldred and Ringwould in Kent.
This talk is in response to Fourth Monkey's performance of The Massacre At Paris.
This talk is at St Peter’s Methodist Church Hall, two minutes’ walk from the theatre – just off the High Street. Click here for a map.
