Leicester born Anne Fine is a distinguished writer for adults and children, former Children’s Laureate, and two times winner of the covered Carnegie Medal. Adaptations of her books Bill’s New Frock and Goggle-Eyes have been screened by the BBC and her novel Madame Doubtfire was adapted as the immensely popular Mrs Doubtfire, starring the late Robin Williams.

Anne Fine’s work has been translated into over thirty languages. Her work has been translated into 27 languages and tends to reflect her interest in political and social issues. She became Children’s Laureate in 2001 and during her two years of office set up The Home Library and published three anthologies for different age groups.

This is a rare opportunity to hear one of Leicester’s most famous writers talk about her life and work.
