WhitLit is delighted to announce a fundraiser author event on Friday 12 September at the Horsebridge Centre, featuring the bestselling author and journalist Kathy Lette.

Kathy will be in conversation with fellow author and columnist Jane Wenham Jones discussing her gloriously funny new novel Courting Trouble as well as her life and career.

Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an inimitable take on serious current issues. She first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series. After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband – and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth. She is known for her regular appearances on BBC and Sky news programmes. She is an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International, the White Ribbon Alliance and the NAS.

Jane Wenham-Jones is an author, journalist and presenter, who lives in Broadstairs, a town that appears in two of her novels. Jane interviewed Lynn Barber at WhitLit in May.
