Booth tells the story of the brilliant and disastrously ill-fated Booth family. Junius is the patriarch, a celebrated Shakespearean actor who fled bigamy charges in England, both a mesmerising talent and a man of terrifying instability. As his children grow up in a remote farmstead in 1820s rural Baltimore, the country draws ever closer to the boiling point of secession and civil war.

Of the six Booth siblings who survive to adulthood, each has their own dreams they must fight to realise - but it is Johnny who makes the terrible decision that will change the course of history - the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

In conversation for this virtual event, Karen will explore the inspiration behind her mesmerising new novel and the enormous amount of research that went into this epic saga. This promises to be a riveting and entertaining event, as Karen uncovers the very things that bind, and break, a family.
