A Night In with Fern Brady
Join writer and performer Fern Brady to celebrate the publication of her debut memoir, Strong Female Character.
If you’ve ever been on a night out where you got blackout drunk and have laughed the next day as your friends tell you all the stupid stuff you said, that’s what being autistic feels like for me: one long blackout night of drinking, except there’s no socially sanctioned excuse for your gaffes and no one is laughing.
For this unmissable night in, Fern will discuss Strong Female Character and how she uses her voice as a neurodivergent, working class woman from Scotland to bring her experiences with sex work, abusive relationships and her time spent in a teenage mental health unit to the page. Written with unflinching honesty, Strong Female Character is a game-changing memoir on sexism and neurodiversity. With all of Fern’s signature caustic wit and electric presence, this is an event you do not want to miss.
