Tackling Figures of Fun

Danish comedian Sofie Hagen burst onto the UK stand-up scene in 2015 by taking the Best Newcomer Prize at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and she's gone on to establish herself as a sensitive and urgent voice for outsiders. Join her in Charlotte Square Gardens as she discusses body image and the notion that being fat is wrong in a society obsessed by shrinking – the topic of new book Happy Fat.

We invite you to Pay What You Can for this event. You may choose to pay an amount between £0 and £25 for your ticket, taking into consideration what you can reasonably afford to spend. This pricing has been introduced to help make the Book Festival accessible to those with limited means. If you are able to pay more for your ticket, you will help support our efforts to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it.
