She flabbergasted the nation flying through the air on Strictly Come Dancing and inspired Britain’s greatest comedian, Victoria Wood, to write a musical final extravaganza in her honour. Forthright and intrepid in sequins, and even more formidable in the House of Commons, the former Shadow Home Secretary has written numerous books including her memoir, Strictly Ann, and a crime novel inspired by the show, The Dancing Detective, which follows a murder investigation after a dancer on a TV reality show is found dead in her dressing room.
In her talk, Ann will focus on her career as an author and life after politics. She is currently writing her fifth novel, An Act of Brotherhood.
