An Evening with Melvyn Bragg

Acclaimed author and broadcaster Melvyn Bragg discussed his latest novel Now is the Time, a rich and compelling tale set in the heart of the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381.

As a virulent plague gripped England, Richard II’s counsellors brought news of growing resistance to his crippling new taxes. When the fourteen-year-old king sent armed commissioners to claim his money, the commoners revolted, throwing his sovereignty into serious jeopardy.

Masterfully blending fact and fiction in a tale of power and justice, religion, loyalty and ethics, Melvyn Bragg brought to life the momentous episode in English history that saw our island’s first democratic uprising.
