Elizabeth Day

Friday 7th June 7pm


Inspired by her hugely popular podcast, How To Fail, in which she interviews highly successful people including actor and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, novelist Sebastian Faulks, political activist Gina Miller and the writers Olivia Laing, David Nicholls, Dolly Alderton and Sathnam Sanghera about what failure had taught them – novelist and former Observer journalist Elizabeth Day shares her brilliantly funny, painfully honest and insightful celebration of things going wrong.

Part memoir, part manifesto, her book  How to Fail is based on the simple premise that understanding why we fail ultimately makes us stronger. Uplifting, inspiring and rich in stories from her own life, Elizabeth reveals that failure is not what defines us; rather it is how we respond to it that shapes us as individuals.
