Sally O'Reilly Dark Aemilia launch at Waterstones Brighton

Dark Aemilia paperback cover

Myriad invites you to celebrate the paperback publication of lush historical novel Dark Aemilia by Sally O’Reilly at Waterstones Brighton on Thursday 30th April from 7.30pm–9pm.

In the boldest imagining of the era since Shakespeare in Love and Elizabeth, this spellbinding novel of witchcraft, poetry and passion brings to life Aemilia Lanyer, the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s Sonnets — the playwright’s muse and his one true love.

Published to acclaim in hardback in March 2014, Dark Aemilia has attracted rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. The New York Times Book Review said of the novel: ‘More tantalizing than the thought of Shakespeare in love is the thought of Shakespeare in lust… Was the real Dark Lady this Dark? Let’s hope so.’

Join us to raise a glass to Dark Aemilia and hear Sally read from and discuss her remarkable book with Myriad’s Publisher, Candida Lacey. This is a free event; all are welcome.
