Jenny Jackson – You’re Booked

Dream guest alert! We are very, very excited to welcome the wonderful Jenny Jackson to You’re Booked! As well as being the author of smash hit novel Pineapple Street, Jenny has been a book editor for many years working with such YB faves as Katherine Heiny and Helen Fielding. So we had much to talk about. On the agenda is the genius of Laurie Colwin, the joy (and stress) of discovering new authors, some great, secret Katherine Heiny insight and Helen Fielding’s paramedic skills (plus the recording is interrupted by a cheese alarm!) This conversation took place at the fabulous Mr B’s Emporium bookshop in Bath.

Daisy will be attending the Queen’s Reading Room Festival, look out for exclusive behind the scenes content on her Instagram page @TheDaisyBee.
