By the Book: Book Club December 2021 - Hamnet

For our final book club of the year, we're discussing Hamnet, Maggie O'Farrell's imagining of the love story between Agnes Hathaway and William Shakespeare, and the tragedy of the loss of their child, Hamnet. Playing with themes of agency, grief, and the undercurrents that connect life and art, it's a deeply poetic and emotional book. We're joined by theatre practitioner, Anne James, to talk about the experience of reading Hamnet, and the way it reframes the Bard's life, and makes Agnes (Anne) Hathaway our protagonist and narrator. And then in Footnotes, we pay tribute to Anne Rice after her passing on December 11th 2021.
