A Clare Winner!

Clare 33

Earlier this week Viking held the much anticipated launch party for Clare Balding’s wonderful childhood memoir My Animals and Other Family at The Ivy.

It was a particularly busy day for Clare (it’s been a very, very busy year) as she was also spotted in the Olympic and Paralympic parade in front of our offices on the Strand (oh, and a few other sporting stars from the summer).

Penguin UK CEO Tom Weldon gave a warm and witty speech to say how much we appreciated it when an author does their bit to up their profile just before their book is published. But he added that the reason we took on the book was that Clare's a real writer. It's a magical, moving book that will be read for decades to come.

Fingers crossed that the book is a massive bestseller when it's released today. She certainly deserves it; there was a LOT of love in the room for her as you can see below.
