Hammersmith children's author Lotte Moore will recount her experiences of being a young child growing up during World War Two to school children.
The 81-year-old will read extracts of her book Lotte’s War, which tells of her time as an evacuee during the 1939-1945 conflict.
She will meet children from four west London schools on Friday (November 3) at the London Corinthian Yacht Club.
She told getwestlondon: “Not enough people know what it was like during the war.
“I want to show children the courage displayed in this very greedy age.
“I’m 81 and I want to pass on the heroism and hope before I’m gone, and I hope they give my book to their next generation.”
Pupils from Latymer Junior Prep and St Peter’s Primary school in Hammersmith, St Cuthbert’s Primary School in Earl’s Court and St John’s Walham Grove in Fulham, will attend.
Mrs Moore has also penned a song about life during the war, and will have a table full of typical rationed food, as well as discussing experiences in an underground bomb shelter.
