The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers (Book Launch)

About The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers (Book Launch)

A wall in the distant north cuts the world in two. Ruthless seaborne warriors raid the coasts from their war galleys, yearning to regain lost glories. A young nobleman and his kin are slaughtered under a banner of truce within a mighty castle. A warrior king becomes a legend when he smites his foe with one swing of his axe during a nation-forging battle. Yet this isn’t Westeros – it’s Scotland.

Join author and presenter David C. Weinczok for the launch of his book, ‘The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers’ and discover the characters, battles, landscapes, and lore that wove their way into George R. R. Martin’s world of ice and fire.

An hour-long talk will cover highlights from the book, followed by a signing and reception. One glass of wine is included in the ticket price.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The History Behind Game of Thrones: The North Remembers (Book Launch) are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
