"This Is My Becoming" with Laura Jane Williams
Wed, April 12, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM BST
This Is My Becoming with Laura Jane Williams is an evening of fun and frank discussion about sex and how we have it, centered around Laura's breakthrough memoir BECOMING: Sex, Second Chances and Figuring Out Who the Hell I Am. When the man Laura thought she'd marry dumped her to marry her best friend, she was devastated. Drinking too much, sleeping with ill-advised men and moving from place-to-place, ultimately she wasn't happy. She declared a year-long vow of celibacy to truly heal her broken heart, and found herself in a Riviera convent as she slowly put the pieces of herself back together before re-entering the dating game with aplomb. With readings from her work and behind-the-scenes details of her Grazia dating column - the stuff they couldn't print - Laura will have you giggling, welling up, and ultimately affirming me too with what it is to be a sexual woman who wants to talk about it.
The ultimate girls' night in - this intimate and informal evening is the perfect opportunity to mingle with like minded women, share stories and have a good laugh. Who knows what treats we may have for you on the night. Just bring a bottle of wine, some chocolates and nibbles and enjoy a good time!
Laura Jane Williams was Grazia’s “single girl” columnist until February 2017, is Marie Claire’s #BREAKFREE from fear ambassador, and has written about dating, lust and her feelings everywhere from The Guardian to RED to Buzzfeed, The Metro, Stylist, The Telegraph and more. She is currently writing her third book.
'Everyone is writing about sex. Some are even doing it. Haven't we all been waiting for someone to look at what happens when you opt out, and to do it with not only humour...but also true empowerment? Call off the search. At last, here she is' – The Guyliner
