mel giedroyc

Chaired by Gabriella Bennett

15 May, 2021 4.45pm – 5.45pm

Mel Giedroyc has been entertaining the nation for nearly thirty years. A comedian, writer, actor and presenter, Mel is best known for her work with Sue Perkins in the double act Mel & Sue. They have presented many TV shows such as multi Bafta-winning The Great British Bake Off , (BBC) and Light Lunch (Channel 4). In her debut novel, ‘The Best Things’, we meet Sally Parker, who is struggling to find the hero inside herself. All she wants to do is lie down.
Her husband Frank has lost his business, their home and their savings, in one fell swoop. Their bank cards are being declined. The children have gone feral. And now the bailiffs are at the door.

What does an ordinary woman do when the bottom falls out? Sally Parker is about to surprise everybody. Most of all herself. A big-hearted story of a family on the brink, The Best Things is a life-affirming tale of failing, falling and finding a way back up.
