Southbank Centre's London Literature Festival is proud to present Hillary Rodham Clinton, the first woman nominated for US president by a major party. In this candid interview, she discusses her most personal memoir to date, What Happened, which depicts a tumultuous election that had the world on tenterhooks, filled with breathtaking highs and lows, stranger-than-fiction twists and allegations of sexism and Russian interference.
In her only London appearance, she talks about the rituals, relationships and reading that got her back on her feet, and what the experience has taught her about life.

'In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.' (Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened)
In her memoir, she describes what it was like to run against opponent Donald Trump and the extreme scrutiny she has been placed under in her position as a strong woman in the public eye. She discusses the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up after an historically unprecedented election, where her defeat led to protests across the United States and throughout the world.
