Bridget Jones is back! Author Helen Fielding in conversation with Vogue editor Valerie Steiker.

Join best-selling author Helen Fielding to celebrate her iconic heroine's return after fourteen years of silence in the new book, Mad About the Boy, as she discusses life, love, and the inimitable Bridget Jones with Vogue culture editor Valerie Steiker.

When Helen Fielding published Bridget Jones’s Diary in 1997, an icon was born. Bridget’s name alone conjures up a distinct image—that of the hapless Everywoman—a certain kind of thirty-something single professional, full of stream of consciousness, self-assessing mental clutter, trying her best to keep it together. And that explains her enduring popularity: Bridget became a beloved, iconic protagonist because she allowed females everywhere to laugh at… well, themselves.

And now she’s back.

London, 2012: tweeting, texting, and dating online (ugh). Navigating life and love in the digital age. Pondering things big (is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood?) and small (is the need for a blow-out turning women into men of the 17th century who can’t go without powdered wigs?) BRIDGET JONES: MAD ABOUT THE BOY takes us on a whole new adventure while answering the questions her fans have been wondering about for years: Did she pick Daniel or Mark? Is she a singleton or a smug married? A mother or not? And whatever became of Jude and Vile Richard?

So grab a glass of Chardonnay, turn up the Chaka Khan, and get re-acquainted with the one and only Bridget Jones.

Helen Fielding will be signing books after the discussion. This event is presented in collaboration with our neighbors McNally Jackson Bookstore, who will be on hand selling books. You have an option to pre-order a book when you purchase a ticket. Books will be available for pick-up at the event.
