House of Trelawney
Chair: Lucy Silver
Hannah Rothschild, writer, documentary filmmaker, business woman and philanthropist presents her deliciously funny new novel – at once a moving love story and dazzling social satire – set in the parallel and seemingly unconnected worlds of the British aristocracy and high finance. This is a story about old money, new money, and the distinctly strapped-for-cash, told against the backdrop of a once magnificent castle in Cornwall.
Hannah Rothschild CBE is an award-winning writer and documentary film director. She is a former Chair of the Board of Trustees of the National Gallery, and she is a Trustee of Waddesdon Manor. Hannah’s previous novel The Improbability of Love won the 2016 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction.
