An Evening with Elinor Lipman

Recommended Posts

Village Books are delighted to welcome Elinor Lipman, author of The Inn at Lake Devine, Then She Found Me and The Family Man to Dulwich.

The Washington Post described Elinor as ?an enchanting, infinitely witty yet serious, exceptionally intelligent, wholly original, and Austen-like stylist?

Elinor will be discussing her new book Good Riddance: One woman?s trash becomes another woman?s treasure, with deliriously entertaining results? In a fit of decluttering, Daphne Maritch throws away the heavily annotated high street yearbook she inherited from her mother. But when it?s found in the recycling bin by a busybody neighbour turned documentary filmmaker, its mysteries ? not to mention those of her own family ? take on a whole new urgency, and Daphne finds herself entangled in a series of events both poignant and absurd.

Elinor Lipman is the award-winning author of eleven novels, including The View from Penthouse B and The Inn at Lake Devine; one essay collection, I Can?t Complain; and Tweet Land of Liberty. She lives in New York City.

Tuesday 17th March, 7.30pm

Bell House, 27 College Rd, Dulwich, London, SE21 7BG

Tickets ?10 (includes a glass of wine)

    • A quick Google found this, amongst other things: "Social impact models are frameworks or approaches that guide how organizations or initiatives address social or environmental problems."
    • "If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck then it must be a duck" comes to mind Unfortunately, a large number of cyclists do exhibit selfish amd anti social behaviour which, regardless of how many good cyclists there are, is seen as the norm.  It's a bit like one car driver jumping a red light and all car drivers getting tarred by the same brush. Perception is the issue and if cyclists all obeyed the rules, everyone would be less anti them but unfortunately that isn't the case 🤔
    • Crikey. How did you know it was Immigration Enforcement? 
    • Saying cyclists are the most antisocial people in London isn't helpful.  Nor is the Standard referring to cyclists as lycra clad louts  Yes we can have an adult conversation.  But emotive knee jerk nonsense is not going to achieve this and just plays into the hands of those wanting a manufactured culture war
