Ken Follett Announces ‘Pillars of the Earth’ Prequel
ByG.G. Andrew|January 13, 2019 '...the prequel will be set around the year 1000 AD in Kingsbridge, the setting of The Pillars of the Earth. Except in this earlier time, Kingsbridge is only “a little Anglo-Saxon settlement threatened by Viking invaders.” Follett went on to say that the draft is currently being read by editors and a group of historians specializing in that period of history. He anticipates he’ll spend 2019 rewriting the story with suggestions from these editors and historians, and it should be released sometime in 2020. Follett concluded by saying, “It’s a long process, but I think it’s worthwhile, and when you read the book, I hope you’ll agree.”
'Fans of Ken Follett’s 1989 epic The Pillars of the Earth are thrilled by the news. An epic medieval tale about the people behind a quest to build the world’s greatest Gothic cathedral, The Pillars of the Earth was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and what Booklist called a “monumental masterpiece.” '
