Spotlight on Author
September 28 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Guild includes many authors as well as journalists and many who are both! We want to offer our members the chance to hear directly from them and from other leading book writers with a health specialism. We are kicking off the first of our Zoom book club events with an interview with Guild committee member Miranda Levy, and an excerpt reading from her book The Insomnia Diaries which was recently published by Aster, moderated by fellow committee member Jacqui Thornton.
Miranda is a journalist and author of more than 25 years’ experience. Starting out on magazines including Cosmopolitan and New Woman (RIP), she then hacked it at the Daily Mail and Sunday Mirror before heading back to glossies and the launches of Glamour and Grazia. She had two babies, wrote The Rough Guide to Babies in 2006, and became editor of Mother & Baby, where she was twice nominated for a British Society of Magazine Editors award. Now a freelance writer and editor for national newspapers, she covers many topics – but particularly health – for titles including the Telegraph platforms, the Mail on Sunday and the i. Miranda has contributed to the Spectator, the Jewish Chronicle and the New York Post.
We intend to hold these every quarter, so if you have recently published a health book and want to take part, please let us know.
