Nina Stibbe in coversation with Nick Hornby

Thursday 2nd June 2016 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Nina Stibbe, the author of the bestselling Love, Nina joins us to talk about her new novel, Paradise Lodge, with Nick Hornby, writer of modern classics such as High Fidelity, About a Boy, and Funny Girl.

Leicester-born Nina received massive acclaim for her first book, the comic memoir Love, Nina, which went on to win the Non-Fiction Book of the Year at the 2014 National Book Awards. Paradise Lodge tells the story of the 15-year-old Lizzie Vogel, who finds herself working in an old people’s home in the 1970s. Through a cast of wonderful characters and Nina’s trademark comic voice, it’s the story of being very young, and very old, and the laughter, and the tears, in between.

And who better to join Nina in conversation than the man who has adapted Love, Nina for the small screen? With BBC One’s Nick Hornby-penned adaptation beginning on May 20th, there’s been no better time for these two beloved comic authors to get together to discuss Nina’s work.

The conversation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience and an opportunity to get your book signed.
