In celebration of her most recent biography, Tom Stoppard: A Life, Hermione Lee shares her unparalleled insight into Stoppard’s life and work, and the challenges of writing a living subject.

In Tom Stoppard: A Life, Lee draws upon unprecedented access to diaries, letters, and countless interviews – from Felicity Kendal to John Boorman, Trevor Nunn to Steven Spielberg – to build a meticulously researched portrait of one of our greatest living playwrights. In this conversation with writer and broadcaster Mark Lawson, Lee will discuss the complex, elusive and private focus of her latest biography, and what it takes to write a life.

Free for RSL Members, who can also book one discounted guest ticket for £3. Log in to book or join here. Non-Members can book public tickets for £5 through the British Library
