Hannah Jane Parkinson will be in conversation with Nell Frizzell to discuss her latest book The Joy of Small Things.
Hannah Jane Parkinson appreciates simple pleasures, whether she is revelling in a fluffy dressing gown (“like bathing in marshmallow”), finding calm in solo cinema trips, noticing the personalities of fonts (“You’ll never see Comic Sans on a funeral notice”), or feeling no guilt if she stops reading a book she isn’t enjoying.

Nell Frizzell is a journalist on magazines (ELLE, Vogue) and newspapers (Guardian, Telegraph). Her first book, The Panic Years, is an exploration of bodies, babies and the big questions facing modern life
