What are the secrets to successful parenting? With authors Philippa Perry and Tom Hodgkinson

Modern parenting is an ever-changing challenge. Join Philippa Perry, author of The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did) and Tom Hodgkinson, author of The Idle Parent, to discuss their approaches to building a strong foundation for a family at the Marx Memorial Library in Clerkenwell.

Philippa Perry has been a psychotherapist for the past twenty years. A faculty member of The School of Life, she has presented several documentaries including The Truth about Children Who Lie for BBC Radio 4 and Being Bipolar for Channel 4. Most recently, Philippa featured in the highly popular dating show, Celebs Go Dating, where she used her expertise to give the celebrities much needed love advice. She lives in London with her husband, the artist and campaigner Grayson Perry, and her cat Kevin. They have one grown up daughter, Flo.

Tom Hodgkinson is editor of the Idler and author of How to be Idle, How to be Free and The Idle Parent – the manual which suggests you leave the kids alone. He has three children aged 18, 16 and 14, none of whom are in prison.
