What should I ask Anna Keay?
I will be doing a Conversation with her, here is from Wikipedia:
Anna Julia Keay, OBE… is a British architectural historian, author and television personality and director of The Landmark Trust since 2012.
Born in the Scottish Highlands, and yes she is also the daughter of historian John Keay. I am a fan of her books, many on British architectural history or for that matter the crown jewels, but most recently The Restless Republic: Britain Without a Crown (or this link) about the 17th century interregnum. Here is her home page. Here is Anna on Twitter. And this:
The Landmark Trust is a British building conservation charity, founded in 1965 by Sir John and Lady Smith, that rescues buildings of historic interest or architectural merit and then makes them available for holiday rental. The Trust’s headquarters is at Shottesbrooke in Berkshire.
Five of those properties are in Vermont, it turns out. She lives (part-time) in what is perhaps the finest surviving merchant’s house in England.
So what should I ask her?
