Two former Liberal Democrat leaders are taking part in the 2016 Write on Kew literary festival in September.

The organisers say:
Nick Clegg offers a frank and honest account of his spectacular rise in the 2010 general election, through his tumultuous years as Deputy Prime Minister, to a brutal defeat in 2015 in order to tell the inside story of this change and reflect on what it means for our future. 
Paddy Ashdown - Join the renowned politician and former marine and intelligence officer to hear the true story of a lethal spy triangle in Bordeaux between 1942 and 1944 and of France’s greatest betrayal by aristocratic and right-wing Resistance leader Andre Grand-Clement. It’s a story of special operations, treachery, bed-hopping and executions in the city labelled ‘la plus collaboratrice’ in the whole of France.
