Bonnie Garmus – Lessons in Chemistry

Live In Conversation in London

The author of Lessons in Chemistry joins us live to share the story behind the debut novel that became a global cultural sensation.

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing.

The same is true of Elizabeth’s creator, Bonnie Garmus. A wildly successful advertising creative turned novelist, the story of Elizabeth’s rise to stardom in the sexist world of 1960s America is a feminist fable that has taken the world by storm.

Now Bonnie joins us with the inside scoop behind Lessons in Chemistry, and to tell us what’s next for one of the most exciting new authors on either side of the Atlantic.

Unique to this event will be the opportunity to buy a signed copy of a new limited edition clothbound edition of Lessons In Chemistry.

 Proceeds from this event will go to The Reading Agency.

This event is presented in partnership with Fane Productions.
