Listen again to Harriet on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs on Sunday:
Dame Harriet has played all the major Shakesperian female roles – from the icy Queen Elizabeth I in Schiller’s ‘Mary Stuart’ at the Donmar to a Tony Award nomination on Broadway.
‘Let me not to the marriage of true minds admit impediments…’
Deborah Moggach is the best-selling author of Tulip Fever. She adapted Pride and Prejudice for the film starring Kiera Knightly. Another is currently filming in Rajasthan with Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire). Deborah is a lead campaigner against the closure of libraries in Camden.
‘Here’s the smell of blood still: all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand’
In the second half Harriet will talk her latest book, what led her to mount a photographic exhibition at the National Theatre last year while taking the lead in Middleton’s ‘Women Beware Women.’
‘There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance; pray,love,remember: and there is pansies. That’s for thoughts…’`
Actor and author will discuss what libraries mean to them-and all of us.
