New Writing North are delighted to present this special event with broadcaster and journalist Sali Hughes, to celebrate the publication of her new book, Pretty Honest.
In Pretty Honest, Sali Hughes debunks the myth that women can’t be interested in beauty and ‘serious issues’ too and draws on over 20 years of wisdom, advice and expertise to show women how to make the most of make-up’s physically and emotionally transformative powers. It’s a work that is part instruction manual, part love letter to make-up – in a writing style that combines beauty editor, feminist and painfully funny best friend.
Sali is the resident beauty columnist on The Guardian Weekend and a regular on-air contributor to Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, The Today Programme and You & Yours. She has made many TV appearances, discussing current affairs, women’s issues, style and celebrity.
We had originally hoped to be able to programme Sali as part of the Durham Book Festival but sadly this wasn't possible so we're delighted to have been given the opportunity to host this event in Newcastle, when she will be in conversation with Marie Nixon, talking feminism and beauty and answering your questions too.
