Rose Rouse will be launching her book tomorrow


Writer Rose Rouse will be taking guests on safari tomorrow evening as she hosts a talk about her book based on a series of walks through Harlesden.

The Brent & Kilburn and Times columnist will be joined by celebrity friends and book-lovers to discuss “A London Safari: Walking Adventures in NW10” at Queen’s Park Books in Salusbury Road, between 6.30 and 8.30pm.

Ms Rouse, who is welcoming residents to join the discussion, wrote the book after blogging about a series of historical and cultural walks she took with NW10 residents, ranging from documentary-maker Louis Theroux to ex-gas meter reader Sue Saunders, in an effort to explore “the richness of multiculturalism in Harlesden”.

An edit version of her blog is published by the Brent & Kilburn Times once a month.

Ms Rouse said: “Every walk I did focussed and deepened my knowledge of people in NW10.”

All are welcome and wine and snacks will be served.
