Literary Lunch | Bonnie Garmus & Alex Clark

A two-course literary lunch with Bonnie Garmus and Alex Clark at University Arms hotel.

  • 23rd April 2023 - 23rd April 2023
  • 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Bonnie Garmus launched onto the literary scene last year with her blockbuster bestselling debut novel Lessons in Chemistry and a TV adaptation is out this year.  

The chemist in Bonnie’s novel is Elizabeth Zott, but science, like life, is unpredictable, and Elizabeth finds herself the reluctant star of a TV cooking show. However, she isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo. 

Bonnie says, ‘In Lessons in Chemistry I was looking to address the long-standing problem of how brilliant minds have been routinely barred from science.’ She will explain over lunch how this led to her funny, rousing, joyful book. 

‘THE antidote to life’s current grimness: a shrewd, witty, inventive, feminist comedy you should all race to read’ – Patrick Gale 

A two-course lunch plus a glass of wine is included. The event will take place in the Ballroom at the University Arms Hotel. 

Tables will be arranged in groups of 10, and you will be allocated seats. There will be a seat plan upon arrival. 

Benefactor & Patron complimentary tickets cannot be redeemed against events at the University Arms.

One of the most famous figures in English history, Oliver Cromwell, was laid to rest at Westminster Abbey, but his decapitated head is buried in the grounds of Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge. Grisly but true!
