About this Event

**Don’t miss the cutting of our 25th birthday cake with Kathy Lette and Mayor Mayer at 11am.**

What do you do when you’re told you’ve got terminal cancer at 50? Take up crochet, get religion and bow out gracefully? Or up-end your life and spend every remaining minute exploring new pleasures?

Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an inimitable take on serious current issues. She is one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism, paving the way for Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham.

She first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series. After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband - and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth.

She is known for her regular appearances on BBC and Sky news programs. She is an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International, the White Ribbon Alliance and the NAS.
