Essex Book Festival: Under a Wartime Sky with Liz Trenow

Saturday 14 March 2020 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Studio 1

Under a Wartime Sky is an enthralling historical novel by Liz Trenow, based on the real-life events at Bawdsey Manor, a top-secret wartime research station. It tells the story of the heroes behind the discovery of radar, an invention whose significance matched that of the more famous code-breakers of Bletchley Park in helping to win the Second World War. It is a novel about courage, belonging and hope.

Essex Book Festival is one of the highlights of the Essex cultural calendar. Each March it hosts over 100 events in over 45 venues across the county, including theatres, libraries, schools, universities, cafes and art galleries. Find out more: www.essexbookfestival.org.uk.
