Final Salon in this Something Rhymed Series

We had another full house last night at our second Something Rhymed Salon, when we talked about the devaluing of so-called women’s issues. Our speakers fed us a gloriously varied platter of food for the mind, and the conversation continued over madeleines, sparkling water and plenty of wine.

Emily and I were pleased to welcome both men and women to our shindig, and we were particularly happy to hear people comment on the friendly atmosphere created by our fantastic panellists: Arifa Akbar, Sarah LeFanu, Karen Maitland and Michèle Roberts.

Do join us for our third and final salon, next Thursday May 12th at 6.30pm, when we’ll have an equally stellar line-up:

Melanie Abrahams: Founder of Renaissance One – a literary events company committed to diversity in the arts.

Jill Dawson: Orange Prize shortlisted novelist.

Louise Doughty: Costa Award shortlisted novelist and former Booker Prize judge.

Varaidzo: Arts and Culture Editor at gal-dem – an online magazine comprising almost fifty women of colour.
