Penguin Live teams up with Stylist to bring you an evening of inspiring women to celebrate the publication of their book Life Lessons from Remarkable Women: Tales of triumph, failure and learning to love yourself.
Embedded in the DNA of Stylist magazine are the voices of inspiring women and their unique take on the world. Now, those voices have been brought together in Life Lessons from Remarkable Women. The book hosts a diverse and fascinating collection of essays which are insightful, funny and often very moving. Addressing every aspect of a modern woman’s life, from love and loss through to confidence-building and empowerment, the contributors range from sportswomen to entrepreneurs, politicians to writers.
To celebrate the release of the book we’ve invited a group of the contributors along to share readings of their essays followed by a Q&A. The event will be chaired by Stylist’s Executive Editor Mandie Gower and will feature Stylist columnist and author Lucy Mangan, broadcaster and sex educator Alix Fox, campaigner and journalist Robyn Wilder, and journalist and author Laura-Jane Williams.
Tickets include a drink and £5 redeemable at The Like A Woman Bookshop.
The remainder of every ticket sold will be donated to Solace Women’s Aid, a London domestic violence charity providing aid to 11,000 women and children a year.

More about the book
If you could share one lesson from your life with every woman, what would it be?
Stylist magazine has asked that question of remarkable women from the worlds of entertainment, politics, sport and fashion. With honesty, wit and a serious no-BS attitude, their lessons address the challenges every woman faces today, from climbing the career ladder and finding inner fulfilment, to forging authentic relationships and overcoming life's setbacks.
Each of these impressive women, including actress Romola Garai and comedian Francesca Martinez, has a tale to tell and an experience to share. Empowering, engaging and unapologetically impassioned, their incisive observations will make you think, reflect - and kick serious ass. These are life lessons for women, by women.
