Come and join us at this summer’s hot ’n’ steamy literary salon where we are discussing rom-coms (and what it is that makes them so great) with die-hard movie fans Guardian columnist Hadley Freeman and journalist and beauty columnist Sali Hughes. From ‘When Harry Met Sally’ to ‘Dirty Dancing’, we’ll be covering what rom-coms can teach us about love and life, feminist messages (if indeed there are any), how today’s offerings measure up to the 80’s classics, and everything in between. Chaired by Will Smith, writer and star of Bafta-winning BBC comedy ‘The Thick of It’.
