Live Podcast recording: Jess Phillips interviews Sali Hughes for the Yours Sincerely podcast

To finish off Birmingham Literature Festival 2022, we’re joined by Jess Phillips MP and journalist and writer Sali Hughes for a special live podcast recording of Yours Sincerely with Jess Phillips.

Jess Phillips is the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley and Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding. She became an MP in 2015.

Jess has always been a prolific letter writer and knows more than most the power of putting words to paper. In the middle of a pandemic that was claiming the lives of so many of her constituents and their loved ones, Jess was inspired to write her husband and children a letter telling them how much she loved them.

So in her podcast, Yours Sincerely, Jess is giving her guests a chance to celebrate three people that mean the world to them.

Someone they love… someone who’s no longer around… and someone who doesn’t realise how significant a role they’ve played in their lives. And when we’ve heard more about each person, they’ll reveal how they would sign off each letter.

Jess’ guest during this special live recording at Birmingham Literature Festival will be journalist and writer Sali Hughes, whose latest book Everything is Washable is published in September 2022.

Sali Hughes is a leading journalist, presenter and broadcaster with over 24 years’ experience. A former magazine editor, she has written extensively for Vogue, Elle, Grazia, the Telegraph, the Observer, Red and RadioTimes and has been beauty editor on the Guardian since 2011.
In 2018 she co-founded Beauty Banks, a nationwide charity providing essential toiletries to people living in poverty, for which she and co-founder Jo Jones have won several major awards.

This event will be a live recording of the Yours Sincerely podcast, to be broadcast later in 2022. Audience questions will be welcome. Any questions may later be broadcast on the Yours Sincerely podcast feed.
