About Time: We Explored the Power of The Sisterhood – An Evening with Daisy Buchanan
May 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Editor-in-Chief of About Time, Angelica Malin, as she chats with Daisy Buchanan about her new book, The Sisterhood: A Love Letter to the Women Who Have Shaped Me.
Topics covered during the course of the evening will include:
- exploration of what it means to be a modern woman
- celebrating the ways in which women connect with one another, both throughout history and in today’s world
- taking deep dive into the issues that unite women across time, space and place, and taking a really hard look at the ways in which we’re all sisters under the skin
About The Sisterhood:
‘My five sisters are the only women I would ever kill for. And they are the only women I have ever wanted to kill.’
Imagine living between the pages of Pride And Prejudice, in the Bennett household. Now, imagine how the Bennett girls as they’d be in the 21st century – looking like the Kardashian sisters, but behaving like the Simpsons. This is the house Daisy Buchanan grew up in,
Daisy’s memoir The Sisterhood explores what it’s like to live as a modern woman by examining some examples close to home – her adored and infuriating sisters. There’s Beth, the rebellious contrarian; Grace, the overachiever with a dark sense of humour; Livvy, the tough girl who secretly cries during adverts; Maddy, essentially Descartes with a beehive; and Dotty, the joker obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race and bears.
In this tender, funny and unflinchingly honest account Daisy examines her relationship with her sisters and what it’s made up of – friendship, insecurity jokes, jealousy and above all, love – while celebrating the ways in which women connect with each other and finding the ways in which we’re all sisters under the skin.
