Two exciting events in November


I’m delighted that Chinglish has been picked for November’s National Teen Book Club! This is a first of a kind programme, bringing together thousands of young people from hundreds of UK state schools and colleges, to a shared virtual book club. What a brilliant idea!


So proud to have been part of the EmpathyLab crew at this year’s KindFest on World Kindness Day, 13th November. This is the world’s largest online festival of kindness, full of speakers and performers, all sharing their collective wisdom, energy and ideas about how kindness can create a more hopeful and resilient world.

Contributions included shorts stories from myself and Rashmi Sirdeshpande, discussion with EmpathyLab founder Sarah Mears and author Jion Sheibani, and walks from Joseph Elliott and Alastair Chisholm.
