Bonnie Garmus: Lessons in Chemistry
Date/Time: Saturday 4 February 2023 14:30-15:30
Session No: 51
Smart, joyous, funny and empowering, Lessons in Chemistry is one of 2022’s stand-out debut novels. It spins us back in time to the 1960s where Elizabeth Zott, a frustrated chemist, finds herself at the helm of a cooking show that sparks a revolution. Join author Bonnie Garmus as she talks about how her unconventional character celebrates a generation of overlooked housewives who faced sexism and double standards, and shows that through the power of hope, staying true to yourself and not accepting the limitations others place on you, you can change the world – one meal at a time.
Bonnie Garmus is a copywriter and creative director who’s worked widely in the fields of technology, medicine, and education.
As a wag to six-thirty, Ted from Reading Dogs UAE will be making a special guest appearance during this session.
