Helen McCrory, who died in April aged 52 after a secret cancer battle, was honoured last night, September 13, 2021, at a party in London’s Holland Park.
The event marked the publication of a book by her close friend Allie Esiri, who has dedicated anthology A Poet For Every Day Of The Year to her.
‘Helen loved poetry and was brilliant at reading it,’ Esiri tells me. ‘I asked Damian [Lewis, McCrory’s actor husband] for his blessing for the event and he gave it.’
