An acclaimed historical writer with a colourful history of her own is travelling to Kensal Rise to take part in a library fundraiser.
Lady Antonia Fraser, creator of the Jemima Shore detective series, and widow of playwright and Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter, will be in conversation with fellow writer Nick Rankin at the Kensal Rise Library, in Bathurst Gardens, on Wednesday at 7.30pm.
The pair met when Nick was head of arts at the BBC World Service, where he won two UN awards for his eco series A Green History of the Planet.
The special event is in aid of the library, which was opened by US author Mark Twain in 1900.
It was closed by Brent Council in 2011.
