      It’s going to be great! I’ve heard her speak before and she’s really thoughtful. With Sam Baker as host, it’s going to be very insightful!

    Curtis Sittenfeld is one of my favourite authors. I didn’t read the event details properly- i just saw her name and thought ‘I’m in’ so imagine my great delight when a hard copy of Rodham landed on my doormat this morning – added bonus and a handy refresher before the discussion.
