Literary Cruise

Literary Cruise - Feat. William Dalrymple

As part of the Confluence Festival of Indian Arts which comes to Mandurah for the first time in 2019, we are delighted to be hosting a Literary Cruise on Wednesday 6 November from 4 to 6pm

Join us for this very special event and enjoy champagne and canapes in the company of internationally acclaimed author and historian William Dalrymple.

Dalrymple is one of Britain’s greatest historians, and is the author of the classic “In Xanadu”, the Wolfson Prize-winning “White Mughals” and the Hemingway Prize-winning “Return of a King”. He is a broadcaster and television presenter, and founder of the Jaipur Literary Festival. As our guest author for this cruise, William will be speaking about his just-released ‘macro-history’, “The Anarchy”, which tells the remarkable story of the rise of the first global corporate power, the East India Company, unfolding a timely cautionary tale. 

In addition to an afternoon with William Dalrymple, tickets include canapes and two glasses of sparkling wine.
