Hear Guardian & Stylist columnist Lucy Mangan talk about her affectionate memoir of childhood reading
For those of us who consistently read by torchlight in our beds after mum had said ‘Straight to sleep please’, or walked into lamp-posts while reading on the way to school, we have a true delight instore when brilliant Guardian and Stylist columnist Lucy Mangan visits to talk about Bookworm, a wonderful memoir of a childhood addicted to reading.
In Bookworm, Lucy recalls her childhood reading with wit, love and gratitude. She relives our most treasured books, their extraordinary creators and examines the many ways that they shape our adult lives. Lucy brings the favourite characters of our collective childhoods back to life – prompting endless re-readings, rediscoveries, and, inevitably, fierce debate – and brilliantly uses them to tell her own story, that of a born, and unrepentant, bookworm.
Lucy will be with us at 7.30pm on 10 April. To book your place, please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org/0207 431 3770
