Meet Kika Markham
Author Kika Markham comes to Balham Library to talk about her book Our Time of Day: My Life with Corin Redgrave. Our Time of Day was inspired by Corin Redgrave’s revelation that after suffering brain damage he could remember little of his marriage – despite the fact that for over thirty happy, passionate and turbulent years he and wife Kika Markham had shared their love of acting, family and left-wing politics with ceaseless energy and commitment. Free, but please call to book a place.
