Nigella Lawson teams up with Maitland Libraries


The people of Maitland are about to get a step closer to meeting Nigella Lawson.

The food writer and celebrity chef has signed on to take part in Maitland Libraries’ ‘Look Who’s Talking’ program as it moves online.

Manager of Libraries and Learning, Keryl Collard, said the change to an online platform due to COVID-19 meant the program was able to attract big names.

 “Current circumstances are reshaping the way we interact with each other and the rest of the world,” Collard said.

“We now have the opportunity to engage with authors in different countries and bring them to Maitland.

“The Look Who’s Talking program has been connecting the community with great speakers and new ideas for over a decade, and exciting new partnerships are enabling Maitland Libraries to deliver world-class events and sought after speakers.”

Lawson will share her cooking wisdom and talk about the publication of her latest book, ‘Cook, Eat, Repeat’ on Thursday 5 November. 

Heather Morris, author of ‘The Tattooist of Auschwitz’, is scheduled for Thursday 12 November.

Other upcoming speakers include Monica McInerney on Wednesday 30 September, discussing her latest novel ‘The Godmothers,’ and Chris Hammer, author of ‘Scrublands’, ‘Silver’ and new novel ‘Trust’, on Wednesday 14 October. 

Look Who’s Talking Online can be streamed via phone, computer or television.
