Bonnie Garmus and Jo Browning Wroe First Words: Meet the Debuts

Wednesday 4 May 2022

Crowne Plaza Hotel

We welcome two of this year's most exciting emerging writers, both of whom have had long careers before publishing their first novels. Lessons in Chemistry, by Bonnie Gamus, is the deftly subversive and delightfully uplifting story of an unconventional female scientist with a quiet game-plan to change the world. Jo Browning Wroe's, A Terrible Kindness, is set in Aberfan and was shortlisted for the Bridport Peggy Chapman-Andrews Award. What has life experience bought to their writing and why did they wait so long?
