SAVE THE DATE: Nigella Lawson will cook up a (virtual) storm in Maitland

UK celebrity chef and all-round domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson will be offering up some tasty cooking tips this November as part of Maitland Libraries’ Look Who’s Talking program.

With the popular program expanding into a new online option in the wake of COVID, Nigella will beam into your lounge room to discuss her latest book Cook Eat Repeat – a combination of recipes and narrative essays about food – and many pearls of cooking wisdom on Thursday 5 November.

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

“We now have the opportunity to engage with authors in different countries and bring them to Maitland through our new Look Who’s Talking Online program.”

Look Who’s Talking has also managed to attract another high-profile author in the form of award-winning New Zealand storyteller Heather Morris.

Best known for her New York Times bestseller The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Heather is scheduled to appear on Thursday 12 November.

If that wasn’t enough, the warmly humorous Monica McInerny will be discussing her latest novel The Godmothers on Wednesday 30 September, while lauded Australian crime novelist (Scrublands, Silver and new novel Tide) Chris Hammer will virtually appear on Wednesday 14 October.

‘The Look Who’s Talking program has been connecting the community with great speakers and new ideas for over a decade’, Keryl added.

“‘Exciting new partnerships are enabling Maitland Libraries to deliver world-class events and sought after speakers despite the challenges of COVID-19.”

The Look Who’s Talking events can an be streamed via phone, computer or TV.
