Jenny Bathurst was 18 when the pandemic turned her life upside down. She coped by writing a weekly newspaper column about life in successive lockdowns. She launches those columns now as a book which chronicles a remarkable year for us all.

In ‘Lockdown Observed: Becoming an Adult Without Leaving the House’, Jenny brings together all her columns from the year 2020-2021, more than 40 of her pieces reproduced exactly as they were published. Her columns were originally published in the Sussex Newspapers including the Chichester Observer.

Join Jenny as she introduces her debut book in the very college in which her journey began.

Throughout the evening will be a short talk, a signing, and some light refreshments. Copies of the book will also be available for purchase (cash only). All proceeds from ticket sales and 50% of profits made from the book will be donated to Freedom4GirlsUK, a charity providing period products to women in poverty here and abroad.

Doors open at 6:45 pm for a 7:00 pm start.
