London Getting Agatha Christie Statue
According to The Guardian, the theatre district in London is in for a treat – approval has just come through from Westminster Council to erect a memorial statue for the queen of crime writing, Agatha Christie.
The statue will not be the likeness of Ms. Christie, but rather will take the shape of a giant book, measuring approximately 2.5 metres, and sculpted from bronze by artist Ben Twiston-Davies. It will find its home in the middle of Covent Garden, where it is sure to enjoy a lot of traffic.
Christie was incredibly prolific and is among the world’s bestselling authors. The sculpture is intended to be unveiled in late November 2012.
