She has spoken at Polish Embassy in London and the British Embassy in Warsaw, and gave a TEDx talk at Stormont in Belfast.

Recently she has also enjoyed giving talks at the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum, White Waltham Airfield, Chicksands Military Intelligence Museum and Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Books tours have taken her to the USA, Spain, Italy and Poland.

Clare also regularly chairs panels and interviews other authors at festivals such as Jewish Book Week, the Henley Lit Fest and Wimpole Hall history festival. Last year she interviewed Jonathan Freedland, Charles Spencer, Caroline Moorhead and, at Hatchards, Anne Sebba among others.

The trouble is, Clare loves talking about books and history, so if your school, local history society or U3A etc might be interested in a talk, please get in touch!
