Anna Thomasson will be giving an illustrated talk on the topic of her book, A Curious Friendship. As a young art student from a working class background, Rex Whistler was locked out of aristocratic circles, until a chance meeting saw his luck change. While on holiday with friend Stephen Tennant, Rex met author Edith Olivier. This would prove to be the most important relationship of their lives.

Anna Thomasson studied for an M Phil in Biography at the University of Buckingham and her thesis was shortlisted for the Daily Mail Biographers' Club Prize. She lives in London and A Curious Friendship is her first book.
