Modern life is full of choices. We’re told that happiness lies within and we can be whoever we want to be. But with endless possibility comes a feeling of restlessness. What does the right life even look like? And why do so many women feel like they’re getting it wrong?

Cue Pandora Sykes’ Sunday Times bestselling essay collection How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? – a wide-ranging, thoughtful and witty book on navigating contemporary chaos.

Join the journalist and podcaster in conversation with journalist Yomi Adegoke for this exclusive event, as she explores the anxieties and myths that consume our everyday lives and the tools that we use to muddle through. From faster-than-fast fashion to millennial burnout, the explosion of wellness to the rise of cancel culture, Pandora will interrogate the stories we’ve been sold, and the ones we tell ourselves. 

Don’t miss out on an evening that will spark a hundred conversations, whilst encouraging you to stop worrying about the answers – and start delighting in the questions.

Presented in partnership with Fane Online.
