Wonderful author and artist Rachel Lichtenstein spoke at Bath Spa Uni about her work including Diamond Street, her book about Hatton Gardens, and the work involved in creating the app she made to accompany it.

She also gave me a top nearly story:

“I nearly married a rabbi and became very orthodox and had 12 children, but didn’t.  I married a Muslim, and at Homerton Hospital years later I nearly bumped into another Rachel Lichtenstein who was having her 8th baby there and lived in Stamford Hill.”
