We are proud to announce David Nicholls, one of the UK’s leading figures in literature, TV and film, as the London Book and Screen Week 2017 Ambassador.
Now in its third year, the seven day festival continues to gain momentum and David Nicholls, whose own career spans bookseller, scriptwriter and bestselling novelist, will champion the specially curated programme of events taking place across London – the creative capital of the world.
As a scriptwriter, Nicholls’ TV credits include Cold Feet, a much-praised modern version of Much Ado About Nothing and an adaptation of Tess of the d’Urbervilles, both for the BBC. As an award-winning novelist, he has written four books including bestsellers Starter For Ten and One Day (Hodder and Stoughton), both of which he adapted himself for screen. Nicholls is also the screenwriter behind the star-studded 2015 adaptation of Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd featuring Carey Mulligan.
Details of the events and ticket sales will be live in late January. Sign up to our newsletter and be the first to hear event news.
