In 2002, Allison Pearson’s bestselling novel I Don’t Know How She Does It introduced us to Kate Reddy, the multi-tasking fund manager for whom having it all meant doing it all. Described by Oprah Winfrey as ‘a bible for the working mother’, it was made into a hit film starring Sarah Jessica Parker. In the brilliantly witty sequel How Hard Can It Be?, Pearson tackles a fresh set of taboos as her heroine faces her 50th birthday and attempts to resume the high-flying career she put on hold, while coping with ageing parents and difficult teens.
Join us on 21 November, when Bazaar At Work meets Pearson to discuss sexism and the Sandwich Generation. The event runs from 6:30pm to 8:30pm; tickets include a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne.
