Join us for an entertaining two-course lunch in the company of bestselling author and award-winning screenwriter, Deborah Moggach, and journalist, author and Chairman of British Condé Nast, Nicholas Coleridge. Hosted by Paul Blezard.
Deborah Moggach is the author of 19 novels including Tulip Fever, Heartbreak Hotel and the much-loved, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. In her deliciously waspish, witty and poignant new novel, The Carer, she turns to the problems faced by middle-age offspring with ageing parents in need of full-time help. When the help turns out to have more of a transformative effect on their father then they could ever have imagined the siblings are forced to put rivalries aside, re-evaluate what life means for the elderly, and grow-up – at last.
Nicholas Coleridge is Chairman of British Condé Nast, publisher of 130 magazines round the world, including Vogue, Tatler and Vanity Fair, and Chairman of the Victoria and Albert Museum. The Glossy Years is his gossipy, scandalous and riveting memoir, based on 30 years in the business, and providing fascinating insights into the worlds of celebrity, fashion and journalism. From Princess Diana to Kate Moss, Anna Wintour to David Bowie, Beyoncé to Bob Geldof, Coleridge relates tales of a life splendidly lived.
