Thursday 4th May 2017 – guest speaker Lucy Menendez
Date(s) - 04/05/2017
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Lucy first worked in the books industry as a work experience girl at Random House, Orion, Bloomsbury and others while completing an English degree at Wadham College, Oxford. On graduating she then worked at Waterstones Charing Cross Road and found a love for the retail trade, which she has remained in ever since. After a long stint at Woolworths working first as a chocolate buyer and then onto toys & stationery, she moved to Tesco and worked in both the International and the UK businesses before joining WHSmith in 2015 as Director of Books.
Lucy lives in Highbury with her two daughters; she loves to read, eat at excellent restaurants and lie on sunny beaches without being interrupted. Of these three pastimes, the interrupted bit rarely happens – she has two happy but noisy daughters aged 7 & 8.
