For one night only, writer, comedian and actor Dawn French will be live in conversation to celebrate the publication of her latest novel Because of You (Michael Joseph). Dawn will be kicking off your festive season, with stories of her life both on-screen and behind the writing desk.
Following a triple crown of bestselling novels, Because of You is Dawn’s first novel in five years and was an instant Sunday Times bestseller. Wise and poignant, it follows two very different mothers in a maternity ward on the first day of the new millennium, and is full of wit, intrigue, and heart. Her best novel yet, Dawn’s perceptive storytelling and curiosity for people shines on every page.
Dawn has appeared in some of this country’s most loved and cherished shows, including French and Saunders, The Vicar of Dibley and Jam and Jerusalem. In 2020, she has reunited with Jennifer Saunders for a new podcast Titting About, and has been filming Roald & Beatrix: The Tail Of The Curious Mouse, which will air this Christmas on Sky One.
Kick off your festive celebrations with what is sure to be a heart-warming and hilarious evening.
