“Times vary and evil and good fortune do not always remain on the same side.” So says Niccolo Machiavelli, the smart, young Florentine diplomat with a ringside seat on the rise and fall of history’s most deadly and charismatic family – the Borgias.

Sarah Dunant is the novelist of the Italian renaissance. In her latest book In The Name Of The Family – as in Blood & Beauty – she sweeps away the myths to bring alive the real Borgia family; passionate, brutal, complex and glorious, holding up a mirror to the moment of history that bred them.

Presented by City Books. This special evening will include a reading, Q&A and book signing.
