In a New Zealand exclusive, WORD Christchurch presents an unexpected and exciting romance author: Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York and former wife of Prince Andrew, coming to you live from Windsor via the magic of the internet. The Duchess, who will appear in conversation with popular author Nicky Pellegrino, has co-written a historical romance novel, ‘[drawing] on many parallels from my life’. Her Heart for a Compass is a fictional account of the life and love story of one of her ancestors: an immersive historical saga that sweeps you from Victoria’s court and the grand country houses of Scotland and Ireland, to the slums of London and the bustle of 1870s New York. We know it’s early, but grab your friends, your mum and your aunts, and come and share the experience over a cup of tea and a bite. You can also submit a question in advance, and if selected will get a front row seat and the chance to ask it face to (digital) face!

Saturday, 28th August
James Hay Theatre, Christchurch Town Hall 8:00 am - 9:00 am $38/36 (Service fees apply)
