Online Talk – Bernard Cornwell; Inspirations of a Forty Year Literary Journey

English author Bernard Cornwell OBE started his career as a teacher, then a researcher for the BBC. Eventually moving to the States, he became an author.

Today, Bernard is probably best known for his historical novels about Richard Sharpe, a Rifleman during the Napoleonic Wars and the Last Kingdom series of stories told through the eyes of Uhtred, a Saxon boy, captured by the Danes and taught Viking ways.

Join Bernard for a look back at some of his favourite characters and learn about some of the inspirations of his forty year literary journey. /
