Literary Lunch with Stig Abell - 14 September 2023

Thursday, 14 September 2023
LivCom off-site

Location: Christopher Wren Dining Room, Ye Olde Watling Pub, 29 Watling Road, London EC4M 9BR

Join us for our next Literary Lunch at the historic Ye Olde Watling pub where we will hear from journalist, newspaper editor and radio presenter, Stig Abell.

Stig Abell presents the breakfast show on Times Radio, a station he helped to launch in 2020. Before that he was a regular presenter on Radio 4’s Front Row and was the editor and publisher of the Times Literary Supplement. At one time or another he has written for almost every newspaper in Britain, and one or two in America as well.

Stig's book How Britain Really Works was published in 2018 and in November 2020 he released his second book What to Read Next. He has since turned to fiction. Death Under a Little Sky, the first in a new detective series, published with HarperCollins in April 2023.

Stig lives in London with his wife, three children and two independent-minded cats called Boo and Ninja (his children named them, obviously).

Georgina Brown is Manager of The Wilbur&Niso Smith Foundation. Before moving to London, Georgina worked in Dorset, Russia and the United States. Georgina is a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellow. She holds an Undergraduate degree in Writing, Directing and Performance from The University of York, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy from The University of Leeds. She is a graduate of The Berkshire Hills Internship Program, an intensive arts management program at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. Prior to life at the Foundation, Georgina has worked in the fundraising ranks of a symphony orchestra and may be the only person to have ever run away from the circus.

The cost of this lunchtime event, which starts at 1.00pm, is just £35 and includes a traditional two-course lunch, as well as the after-lunch interview with Stig Abell and Georgina Brown. We are restricted to 35 attendees, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Books will also be available to preorder and get signed on the day!
