BookBar Presents Monica Heisey in Conversation With Dolly Alderton


Schitt's Creek screen-writer Monica Heisey will be in conversation with Sunday Times Style columnist Dolly Alderton discussing Monica's hilarious debut novel Really Good, Actually, a story of newly divorced Maggie who is struggling to come to terms with being a 29-year-old divorcée.


Living in her unaffordable Toronto flat, she attempts to get back out there, oversharing in the group chat and drinking with her high-intensity new divorced friend Amy as she tries to convince herself and others that she is, in fact, 'really good, actually'.


We promise a brilliant evening that will be as laugh-out-loud funny as Monica's sharp-witted book, as we welcome one of BookBar's most loved writers to talk to one of this generation's most exciting new voices as they discuss the uncertainties of modern love, friendship, happiness and more.
