Authors Haley Hill and Amanda Prowse will be reading from their own works as part of the programme for the first ever Event Industry Sleepover, to take place on 17 September at Olympia London.
This all night event exclusively for women and in aid of Macmillian Cancer Trust and Breast Cancer Now charities, will also offer cocktail mixing classes, yoga, film screenings and more, in addition to the book readings.
Haley Hill will be reading from her debut novel It’s Got to be Perfect , which draws on first-hand stories she encountered after a dramatic career change in her mid-20s. Haley went from working in the pharmaceutical industry to becoming the founder of the Elect Club dating agency. Anecdotes resulting from that time resulted in a novel which reached both No. 1 in the Amazon Humour and the Hot New Releases charts.
Amanda Prowse is a bestselling novelist and short story writer. Her latest works include A Mother’s Story and Perfect Daughter. Her many successes include being Writer in Residence on ITV’s This Morning, achieving fame with her debut novel Poppy Day and reaching 130K followers on Twitter.
Anna Golden, commercial director at Olympia London, said: “Everyone enjoys a book before bed, so we’re delighted to welcome these two brilliant authors to our first ever industry sleepover at Olympia London. As an event honouring the achievements of women in events, it will be great to learn how these two ladies have achieved success in the competitive world of fiction writing – as well as hear some great stories!”
Olympia London, REED, EasyFairs and Mash Media are among those sponsoring entry for their employees and the fun starts from 6pm at the Olympia National hall.
