Sophia Tobin is the Library Secretary for the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths. She previously worked for a Bond Street antique dealer for six years, specialising in silver and jewellery. Inspired by research she made into a real life eighteenth-century silversmith, Tobin began to write her first novel, The Silversmith’s Wife, which was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize.
Copies of the book will be available to buy from the Waterstones pop-up shop.
