Join one of Britain's best-loved celebrities, Sandi Toksvig – writer, broadcaster, activist, comic on stage, screen and radio for nearly forty years, presenter of QI and Great British Bake Off star – live in conversation with leading London literary agent Cathryn Summerhayes as she commemorates women from all around the world who were pushed to the margins of historical record.
To celebrate the publication of her new book Toksvig’s Almanac, inspired by the VoxTox YouTube videos that she recorded during the coronavirus lockdown, Sandi will guide you on an eclectic meander through the calendar, illuminating neglected corners of history to tell tales of the fascinating figures you didn't learn about at school. From revolutionary women to serial killers, pirate nuns to pioneering civil rights activists, doctors to dancing girls, artists to astronauts, Sandi will share fascinating stories alongside useful tips for the year, such as the month in which one is most likely to be eaten by a wolf, and the best time to sharpen your sickle.
As witty and entertaining as it is instructive and inspiring, this event is not to be missed.
