Bonnie Garmus: Lessons in Chemistry

When

Saturday 25 May from 5:30pm to 6:30pm Sunday 26 May from 2pm to 3pm

Cost

Starting from: $40

The smash hit of 2022, charming book clubs and social media alike.

After a male colleague took credit for her work, Bonnie Garmus channelled her rage into the unforgettable protagonist of Lessons in Chemistry Elizabeth Zott – a chemist-turned-celebrity cook who surreptitiously teaches housewives to subvert the status quo.

With her debut, Bonnie became a multimillion-copy-bestselling novelist, whose novel has also been adapted into an Apple TV series starring Brie Larson. This 1960s-set comedy has inspired readers worldwide with its message that it's never too late to change everything – including yourself.

Join Bonnie to chat science, sexism and success in your sixties at the 2024 Sydney Writers' Festival. 

Bonnie Garmus appears thanks to the support of The Salon.
