Tortoise Lates: History

This evening will bring together well-known historians, best-selling authors, Tortoise editors and a bona fide national treasure to explore history in a new way. 

We’ll hear untold stories and share experiences that will challenge what we think we know about our past, and maybe even change the way we look at the world today.

In conversation with historian and author Luke Pepera, join best-selling author and broadcaster Kate Mosse on a joyous storytelling odyssey about mothers of invention and trailblazing women at the Bar; warrior queens and pirate commanders; those women of courage who resisted and fought for what they believed in to defend their families, their culture and their countries; to the unsung heroes of science, stage, screen and stadium.
