AUTHOR and journalist Bryony Gordon is coming to Wirral to discuss her newest book.

After 23 years working for the Telegraph, Bryony has become a popular journalist with over 200,000 followers on social media.

She is the author of the bestselling The Wrong Knickers, plus The Sunday Times Number One bestsellers You Got This and Mad Girl, which were both nominated for British Book Awards.

She is also the presenter of the Mad World podcast and in 2016 she founded Mental Health Mates, now a global peer support network which encourages people with mental health issues to connect and get out of the house.

In 2017 she won the MIND Making A Difference Award for her work in changing the perception of mental health in the media.

In 2018 she ran the London Marathon in her underwear and in 2020, she won the Journalists’ Charity Award from the Society of Editors for mental health campaign. 

Mad Woman by Bryony is the follow-up to her previous book Mad Girl (2016) and will be released on February 15.

A spokesperson for the publisher said: "Mad Woman explores the most difficult of all the lesson she’s learned over the last decade – that our notion of what makes a happy life is the very thing that’s making us so sad.

"Bryony is unafraid to write with her trademark blend of compassion, honesty and humour about her personal challenges and demons, which means her books and journalism have had profound impact on readers."

She will be at Birkenhead School on Tuesday, February 20 at 7pm.

Tickets for the event are here.
