Book launch and lists

This is an information post really.

Firstly, I am thrilled to announce that Crooked Rib Publishing, the Festival of Ideas and the Watershed are teaming up to put on a launch event for The Light Bulb Moment: the stories of why we are feminists.

The structure of the event will be so:

Firstly, contributors to the book will read excerpts from their chapters for 45 minutes.

Followed by a 15 minute loo and wine break.

Then we will have a panel discussion on 'The Future of Feminism' featuring:

Natasha Walter, Women for Refugee Women
Anna Van Heeswijk, Object
Chitra Nagajaran, Southall Black Sisters
Zohra Moosa, Action Aid
Mara Clarke, Abortion Support Network

It's going to be a really amazing and exciting event and I can't wait!

When? 15th May, 7.30pm
Where? The Watershed
BOOKING ESSENTIAL

Secondly, I entered my blog into the Orwell Prize. OK, so unlikely to get a look in but as the National Lottery used to say, you've got to be in it to win it! Here's the list of all the entrants and I'll let you know if I make it to the longlist later this month...It's probably the only time i will be in the company of Melanie Phillips and QRG on a list http://theorwellprize.co.uk/the-orwell-prize/how-to-enter/entries-2012/blog-prize-2012/
