RA Book Club - Sarah Dunant: ‘In the Company of the Courtesan’

Sarah Dunant leads a discussion of her epic novel set in 16th-century Italy.


Internationally bestselling author Sarah Dunant leads a discussion of her epic novel, set in 16th-century Italy. Encompassing love, beauty, the politics of sex and the power of loyalty set against the decadent backdrop of Venice, we follow the story of the fabulous courtesan Fiammetta (the model for Titian’s sensual 'Venus of Urbino') and her companion dwarf Bucino. Dunant’s novel presents a dazzling portrait of one of the world’s greatest cities at its most potent moment in history.

Please read the book prior to attending this event.
