Women in Rail South Book Club – How to Fail by Elizabeth Day

The Women in Rail South book club kicks off with our first discussion on our January book, How to Fail by Elizabeth Day.

Inspired by the popular podcast How to Fail, the book is a funny, honest, and insightful celebration of when things go wrong. The book is for anyone who has ever failed. Which means it is a book for everyone!

Taking place on 2nd February 2021, the discussion will be a light-hearted reflection on the themes in the book and what we’ve learnt from them. Please feel free to join if you have read some or all the book (the book is chunked into small chapters so if you can’t get through all of it before the chat it really doesn’t matter!).

Not only will we have a great discussion on the book of the month, there will be the opportunity to engage with others in the Women in Rail South community. It will also be a chance to give your suggestions for future books for us to read and share together.
