A Glasgow Kiss author Sophie Gravia will hold a special brunch event to raise funds for Beatson Cancer Charity.

From the same pen of the popular Sex in the Glasgow City blog, the book, telling the dating woes of 29-year-old Glaswegian nurse Zara Smith, became a sensation in 2021.

Now writer Sophie Gravia will share hilarious anecdotes from her debut romcom to raise money for charity.

The brunch will take place on December 12, at Embargo, in the city’s West End, where Sophie will read an extract from her book, sign copies and take part in a Q&A session.

Sophie, from Bellshill, found time to write the book while working gruelling shifts as a nurse during the pandemic.
