JESS PHILLIPS - EVERYWOMAN
Fri 24 March 2017, 19:30 – 21:00 GMT
Join us for an evening in the company of Jess Phillips as we celebrate the publication of her book Everywoman: One Woman's Truth About Speaking the Truth.
In the world of politics, telling the truth might seem low on the list of priorities – but this is just one of the reasons why Labour MP, Jess Phillips has created such a storm since her election to Parliament in 2015.
Jess is the poster woman for breaking down barriers, being the ballsy, modern, feminist as well as the everywoman she represents.
Her book is a hilarious, brutally honest manifesto reminding us that we each have a part to play in this world. Everywoman also serves as a piece of reportage from the front-line of being an MP – a group of people who have taken the brunt of the political apathy sweeping the world but who as a whole serve their constituency with dedication and sincerity.
Simultaneously described as 'a breath of fresh air' and 'a pain in the arse', Jess makes no apology for shouting long and loudly about things she cares about. In just over a year she has become renowned as the politician who tells the truth.
Everywoman is the most accessible, passionate, funny political book you'll read this year. So join us for what promises to be a great event - there's lots to talk about!
Event Format: Author talk 'in conversation', audience Q&A followed by book signing.
NB The event starts at 7.30pm (doors open 7.00pm)
Ticket price (£5) redeemable against book purchase.
