You can't come to us so Gliterary Lunches is coming to you. Make yourself a delicious lunch, perhaps even pour yourself a glass of fizz to be truly Gliterary, and sit back and listen to Ruby Wax talking about her latest book.
After the success of our first ever ‘Virtual Gliterary Lunch’ with Sophie Hannah, we are delighted to be bringing you the effervescent Ruby Wax who will tell us about her memoir How Do You Want Me and the journey to writing it. From the comfort of your own home, you can her ask questions and you can interact with fellow Gliterary Lunchers through the chat function.
Break up the routine of lockdown lunches and treat yourself for a Gliterary hour of good books and good company, although once again, we will have to leave the food and drink to you.
To join us simply email [email protected] and we will send you the crowdcast link.
Although the event is free for all, we will be encouraging further donations to the mental health charity MIND through our Just Giving page.
RUBY WAX is a successful comedian, TV writer and performer of over 25 years. Additionally she holds a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University, and was awarded an OBE in 2015 for her services to mental health. She is the author of Sunday Times number one bestsellers, Sane New World and A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled and has toured all over the world with the accompanying one-woman shows. In November 2017, she was announced as the president of the UK’s leading relationship support charity Relate.
‘Tear-jerkingly funny’ Rachel Johnson, The Spectator
‘Ruby’s account of a freakish childhood is no commonplace memoir. Shot through with humour…she tells a terrible story with rare lightness.’ Sunday Independent
How Do You Want Me? is a ruthlessly funny, self-deprecating and shockingly open account of a woman whose life began surrounded by anger. From the RSC to Absolutely Fabulous via interviews with the rich and famous, she made a career out of high-volume humour. But in order to stop fighting, Ruby had to start answering questions of her own.
A hugely funny and deeply moving story of one woman’s journey to outpace her childhood.
Wonderful event – it was an absolute tonic being in the company of the author and listening to her read her own work. Thank you! Will be recommending your lunches!
