UK: Literary event firm brings corporate concept to London




Event firm Gliterary Lunches is targeting London’s booklovers after expanding to the capital.

The company organises literary lunches with award-winning authors, mainly aimed at the female corporate world.

Gliterary Lunches founder Sibh Megson said: “We have been running them since 2006, mainly in Edinburgh and Glasgow, where we are always sold out. Encouraged by the more buoyant economy, we have decided to head for the 'Big Smoke' and launch in London too. 

“The events target women and are 90 per cent corporate women entertaining clients with a scattering of book club ladies who lunch. It is a blend of good food, good books, a bit of fizz and lots of chat - or better described by Lionel Shriver as 'schmooze, booze and books'.”

Over lunch two award winning authors talk about their latest books and then the event wraps up with a book signing. As well as the Orange Prize-winning Shriver, previous events have seen appearances by authors including Margaret Drabble, Tracy Chevalier and Val McDermid.
