Type of Artist:
Talk with reading and Q&A
I take my audience through the historical and mythological background for my books, and briefly explain how the ideas came together. This includes a short reading and a Q&A.
The “Witches” presentation looks at my books “Burn Mark” and “Witch Fire” within the historical context of the European Age of Witch Hunting (and via the Kray Twins!). The “Oracles” presentation is about “Goddess”, and draws on Ancient Greek myths, the legendary founding of Britain by Brutus, Prince of Troy, the paintings of Titian … and famous prophecies through the ages.

“Laura’s visit was a huge success at St. James Senior Girls’ School. The girls all thoroughly enjoyed it, and members of staff also expressed how engaging and enjoyable an event it was. Laura was pleasant and friendly throughout, and the students all immediately warmed to her.
The talk was pitched well, and the students all found it accessible but challenging, with many new and interesting things to learn. Throughout, Laura engaged and interacted well with all of the students, dealing very well with questions. Overall I was very impressed by Laura’s personal ease with presenting to a large group of students."
