Born on Christmas Day to parents who had emigrated to Britain from Bangladesh, Nadiya Hussain grew up in a Muslim family with five siblings, entered an arranged marriage age twenty, and had never been on a train on her own until she travelled to audition for The Great British Bake-Off. Join the TV presenter, cook and bestselling author this Autumn to celebrate the publication of her brand-new book Finding My Voice, as she considers her roles as mother, Muslim, working woman and celebrity in her own warm, honest and humorous way.

Nadiya will be joined by Julia Platt Leonard
