Edinburgh Gliterary Lunch; Celebrating International Women's Day & World Book Day

When: March 7 2019

Where: Edinburgh, United Kingdom


With guest speakers, Erin Kelly & Mary Chamberlain

The Principal Hotel, George Street

Thursday 7th March, 12-3pm

Join us for an afternoon of good food, good books and good company as we celebrate two campaigns close to our Gliterary hearts; International Women's Day and World Book Day.

Two award-winning authors will talk about the inspiration behind their latest books over a delicious lunch.  The event starts with a sparkling drinks reception and canapes and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet the authors over coffee and a book signing.

Gliterary Lunches have been designed with women in mind and provide professional women with an opportunity to entertain clients, network and meet likeminded women.  They are also the perfect format for friends and book groups to meet for a lunch with a difference.

Erin Kelly is a journalist and author.  Her 2018 top ten bestseller, He Said, She Said which was picked for both the Richard & Judy and Simon Mayo Radio 2 Book Clubs and was listed for the Theakston's Old Peculiar crime novel of the year. Stone Mothers is her gripping new novel which will keep you on your toes with twists you never see coming.

“What a storyteller Erin Kelly is. The women in this book and the ways in which their lives are entwined, the echoes of the past, the weight of secrets, the fear and the intimacy – it’s all in here. Simply spectacular. EVEN BETTER than He Said/She Said which shouldn’t be possible.”  Sarah Hilary

Mary Chamberlain is a historian and writer.  Her spellbinding latest novel, The Hidden, is based on two true stories of women during WW2; a Jewish refugee in hiding on Guernsey who was betrayed to the Nazis and a prisoner of Ravensbruck who was earmarked for the 'Lebensborn' programme.

Shines a piercing light on the shrouded history of human trafficking and labour camps in the Channel Isles during WW2. A fascinating and powerful story of love, endurance, betrayal and guilt.' Anna Mazzola, author of The Unseeing
