7pm til 9om
Bestselling author Otegha Uwagba will be hosting the evening, joined by special guests Tolani Shoneye (co-host of the wildly popular The Receipts podcast and author of the bestselling Keep The Receipts), and Guardian columnist Harriet Gibsone (author of the forthcoming - and hotly anticipated - memoir Is This Ok?), who'll both be giving readings throughout the evening - offering attendees an early preview of work by two of the most exciting and culturally insightful women writers of the moment.
Join us for dinner, conversation, drinks by the fireplace - and the chance to hang out with other literary-minded women.
Guests will enjoy a Maker's Mark welcome cocktail followed by a 3-course meal in Isla's (weather-proofed!) garden terrace.
