Daring Debuts: Bonnie Garmus, Greg Mosse & Jo Browning Wroe
Date/Time: Sunday 5 February 2023 18:30-19:30
Venue: Al Baraha I, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City
Session No: 244
What is the perfect age to write a book? The answer, of course, is that it’s nothing to do with age, though a fuss is often made of those published in their twenties, because success then is so rare. Many, if not most, famous authors did not publish their first book until later in life, with their skills honed and talent enhanced by life’s rich experiences.
Bonnie Garmus (Lessons in Chemistry), Greg Mosse (The Coming Darkness) and Jo Browning Wroe (A Terrible Kindness), are all writers who have joined the ranks of late bloomers with books that have become instant bestsellers.
Join their fascinating discussion on the delights and demands of the debut, and what it takes to get that first book out.
This session is moderated by Fiona Lindsay
