A wonderful Gala Evening was held on Saturday 27th November. Historian and Biographer Helen Rappaport gave a fascinating overview of her new book 'Magnificent Obsession'. Drawing on unseen letters and diaries, she revealed the extent of Queen Victoria's obsessive love for her husband, even beyond his death. Artist, Weimen produced some excellent sketches, capturing the atmosphere of the evening:

The whole evening was made possible by the generous donations of food, gifts and time from Kennington's library supporters.  In particular we thank all those that gave up their time to organise and serve at the event, pictured here. Special thanks go to Dominique and Sylvia - without whom the event wouldn't have happened.
