Gina Miller, Rise

  • The Oak Theatre Knole Academy Sevenoaks TN13 3LE (map)

Come join us at the Sevenoaks Literary Festival.

In 2016 Gina Miller successfully challenged the Government over its authority to implement Brexit without the consent of Parliament.  The court battle led her to being named as the country's most influential black person.

Her new memoir, Rise has been described as “a rallying cry, offering guidance and confidence to women in particular for making their voices heard, claiming their own stories, and finding strength in adversity.” In addition to her work challenging Brexit, the publisher cited Miller’s fight for “transparency and ethical conduct in the financial industry” and how she has overcome “considerable challenges in her personal life”

The event is hosted by Decca Aitkenhead who interviews leading figures from public life for The Guardian and was named Interviewer of the Year at the 2018 Press Awards.
