By Maryann Yin Comment

Love, NinaAuthor Nick Hornby has signed on to adapt Love, Nina: A Nanny Writes Home. The BBC plans to transform Nina Stibbe’s 2014 nonfiction title into a five-part drama series.

In the past, Hornby actually gave a blurb for the book. Throughout his career, he has served as the screenwriter for several adaptation projects: An Education, Wild, and Brooklyn.

Here’s more from Variety: “The book tells the true story of Stibbe, who moved when she was 19 years old from the English provinces to London to work as a nanny for Mary-Kay Wilmers, the editor of the London Review of Books. It is told through letters sent by Stibbe to her sister over a five-year period.”
