Thread to publish broadcaster and writer Anniki Sommerville’s How To Be A Boss At Ageing

Claire Bord has signed World English Language rights in How To Be A Boss At Ageing by Anniki Sommerville who hosts a podcast of the same name. The deal was agreed with Louise Buckley at the Zeno Agency and the book will be published on 8th March 2021 to coincide with International Women’s Day.

Claire Bord commented:

‘Anniki talks candidly about all aspects of ageing, covering everything from cosmetic surgery, parenthood, relationships and work in such a refreshing and inclusive way. Funny, honest and packed with advice including interviews with experts, I want to press this book into the hands of all the incredible women I know and say, ‘read immediately!”

Anniki said:

‘I’m super excited to be signing with Thread and am confident that the book is going to speak to so many women who are currently dealing with a ‘perfect storm’ of ageing, managing the changing work climate, piles of domestic admin, relationships in flux, corona – the whole caboodle. I’m hoping it’ll be a helpful tool and convince women that there is definitely a future and it’s not all slankets and early nights post 40 (or actually it can be if you want it to be).  I can’t wait to get it out there!’ 

Anniki Sommerville is co-founder of The Hotbed – a podcast that focuses on sex and relationships after kids and has featured Rose McGowan, Meg Matthews, and Jess Philips.
