I am proud to tell you that artist, writer, musician and friend Roger G Taylor (author of Marilyn on Marilyn and Marilyn in Art) will be providing the artwork which will be displayed behind me as I talk. Not only that, but the music that will be playing as you enter the theatre has been composed by Roger and is absolutely amazing. I won't say too much about the music because I want it to be a nice surprise, but let's just say that the songs are amazing tributes to Marilyn and since receiving the CD, I've been playing it non-stop.
The timetable for the day is as follows:
1.15 - The talk will begin. Please be there early to ensure you get a seat.
1.50 - Questions and Answers session (please be gentle!)
2.00 - Book signing for my book, Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed
2.30 (ish) - I will be heading to the gallery's Marilyn exhibition to look at the fabulous items on display and chat to readers. I will be accompanied by my parents, so if you see us, please come up and say hello. I'd love to meet as many readers as I possibly can, so please introduce yourself if you see me (or my mum and dad!)
I will put up more information about the talk nearer the day, but for now here is a link to the lecture on the National Portrait Gallery website:
And here is a video, telling you how to get to the gallery:
