TOPPING & COMPANY BOOK EVENT - ROBERT WEBB

13 September 2017 7pm

Please note that this event is now taking place in The Hayward Theatre, The King's School, The Gallery, Ely.

Topping & Company Book events provide rich illumination into an author's work and help deepen the experience of reading. They are lively experiences with the emphasis on direct communication between author and audience. The talks usually last about an hour, followed by questions, and then there is an opportunity to meet the speaker and have a book signed.

Part-memoir, part call-to-arms from the award-winning and hilariously funny Robert Webb, How Not to be a Boy promises to be an exceptional and even game-changing book.

Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert Webb considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of life.

Familiar to many as one of the double act Mitchell and Webb, Peep Show and columns in The Telegraph and The New Statesman, Robert Webb will entertain, shock and surprise as he shares his thoughts on masculinity and manhood, offering invaluable life lessons for us all. Heartbreakingly funny.
