Voice in Cookery Writing: Nigella Lawson, Ella Risbridger and Bee Wilson live-screening event in Brownlow Library

Brownlow Library is delighted to host a free live-screening of Voice in Cookery Writing: Nigella Lawson, Ella Risbridger and Bee Wilson on Monday 8 April at 6:45pm.

Streamed live from the British Library in London, this exclusive screening event explores the role of voice, narrative and storytelling in cookery books with three fantastic food writers. 

Nigella Lawson became Deputy Literary Editor of The Sunday Times at the age of 26, followed by a successful career as a freelance columnist and journalist, writing for a range of magazines and newspapers and now has 11 bestselling books to her name.

Ella Risbridger is a 26-year-old London based journalist and poet. Midnight Chicken is Ella’s debut and is a cookbook to make you fall in love with the world again: what it means to share a meal, the simple pleasure in cooking for yourself and how, sometimes, food can help you through even the darkest moments in life.

Bee Wilson is a food writer, historian and school food campaigner. She is the author of 6 books on food related subjects including The Way We Eat Now: Strategies for Eating in a World of Change, First Bite: How We Learn to Eat and Consider the Fork and was named Fortnum and Mason food writer of the year in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Stephanie Hunter, Brownlow Branch Library Manager said;

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to host this live webcast event in Brownlow Library. I would like to invite everyone to join us and learn how a recipe is so much more than a set of instructions; it is a story, an experience waiting to happen. 

 “Having this talk streamed live into the library from the British Library in London is particularly exciting as it provides members of the local community the opportunity to gain free access to events they would not otherwise be able to attend.”

This event is free and booking is advisable, doors open at 6:45pm with the screening beginning at 7:00pm and running until 8:30pm. Call into Brownlow Library, email​ or phone 028 3834 1946 for further information and to book your place.
