Talking Tough Topics
with Jennifer Niven

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 27 May 2017
Category Live Event

Ready to get real? Bestselling author Jennifer Niven writes what she knows – no matter how hard that might be. Her international bestseller All the Bright Places is about a boy she dated in her 20s, while her latest novel, Holding Up the Universe, was inspired by her struggles with her weight and the experiences of her cousin, who has prosopagnosia (face blindness). Jennifer talks with Victoria Flanagan about transforming real-life struggles into stories and how the act of writing can be liberating.
