HRH Camilla at 20 year Bookstart Celebration
An afternoon at Kensington Roof Gardens with celebrity guest HRH Camilla celebrating Bookstart with brilliant authors like Malorie Blackman, publishers, The Book People - Seni Glaister - and the entire Booktrust team including Marian Keen Downs of The Letterbox Club. But my day was made up by meeting sister Francesca Beard. I was there with my dearest friend the incomparable original, stylish and connected (to what matters) Lisa Dwan.I had no idea HRH was going to be there. I hadn't looked properly at the RSVP. Here's to another twenty years of Book Start and The Book Trust.
