Carrie Dunn will launch her new book 'The Pride of the Lionesses: The Changing Face of Women's Football in England’ at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, 46 High Street in the centre of Nantwich on Friday 11th October 2019 (doors open 6:30pm, talk starts at 7pm).
Carrie is also author of ‘The Roar of the Lionesses: Women's Football in England’ - named one of The Guardian's best sports books of 2016 - and ‘Pride’ continues to look at the progress of women's football in England. It asks the question if England women's football is actually growing from top to bottom, or is it just another slick PR campaign?
Carrie is a freelance journalist, who writes primarily about sport. She has covered the last two Women's World Cups (football) for The Times, Goal.com, Eurosport.com, and regularly features on BBC radio discussing and commentating on women’s football. She has also covered events from the Olympics to the Ashes.
Tickets are £7.50pp and include our delicious snacks and £2.50 discount upon book purchase on the night.
Denise Lawson from the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge said, “As a mum to cricketing and rugby playing girls we are really excited to meet Carrie. Do please get your tickets early to avoid missing out.”
