A chance to meet Emmanuelle Japart, author of #WONDERSPORTWOMEN, accompanied by the journalist Cyrielle Hariel on Sunday 9th July at 3.00pm.
Featuring portraits of twenty-three talented women of all ages, from all different backgrounds, this unique exploration of women and sport is more than just a compelling book. Its aim is to illustrate the benefits of sport, as well as its positive impact on wellbeing, productivity and creativity. Chosen for their role in society, each of these women – through individual interviews and photo portraits (in their trainers!) – offers an insight into their professional success and the importance of sport in juggling their busy lives.
Female role models are the ideal demonstration of the extent to which any form of exercise, whatever the activity and ability, is a wonderful way of boosting our health, lifestyles, self-esteem, personal and professional fulfilment.
