TUESDAY 22ND JANUARY at THE MILLER
Your chance to see the second part in this extraordinary trilogy before its final instalment is unveiled later in the spring
In the whole World, only one manuscript unfolds the Roman de Silence.
Written in 13th century by Heldris of Cornwall, it was discovered in an old English manor house in 1911, in a box marked ‘Old Papers, No Value’.
But suffrage protests were at their height, and this epic tale centres on a gender-fluid minstrel-warrior, whose mere existence challenges the order of a society in which women are subordinate to men. So the legend was silenced once more. But this story was made to be told. Now is the time to tell it.
“Immense skill and breathless conviction… There’s no faulting Reid’s command of her craft” The Times
Since Rachel Rose Reid found an academic copy of the Roman de Silence in a second hand bookshop, she has embarked on a quest to raise it out of the dust and into the light. Join us for second part of this adventure, which will be accessible whether or not you have heard other parts of the epic. www.silencespeaks.strikingly.com www.rachelrosereid.com
