Tickets £10.00


Lessons in Chemistry is a sensation. This smart, joyous, uplifting novel has been capturing the hearts of readers since it first appeared in bookshops here and we are delighted to welcome the author Bonnie Garmus here to talk about her bestseller.

Get ready to meet the unconventional, uncompromising Elizabeth Zott. It’s the early 1960s and Elizabeth is working as a chemist amongst an all-male team who take a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with – of all things – her mind. True chemistry results.

But, a few years later, Elizabeth finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show. Her unusual approach to cooking proves revolutionary because Elizabeth isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.

The author Cathy Rentzenbrink will be joining Bonnie Garmus in conversation. Cathy is an acclaimed memoirist whose work includes The Last Act of Love and Dear Reader. Her first novel Everyone Is Still Alive was published in 2021; a funny, tender novel about parenthood and marriage.
