Celia Dodd and friends celebrate the publication of The Empty Nest

Posted by in Book News

Celia Dodd celebrated the publication of her inspirational new book The Empty Nest at Daunt Books in leafy Holland Park on 6 July. Celia was joined by many friends and family, including children’s author Shirley Hughes, actor and comedian Helen Lederer and the fashion designer Betty Jackson and her daughter Pascale.

The Empty Nest is a timely book offering practical guidance for adjusting to life after your children have flown the nest. This period of life can be one of the most challenging phases of parenting, often creating feelings of loss, lack of purpose and a crisis of identity.

It can also be a time of liberation and discovery. The book is packed with useful advice, inspiration and tips on how to embrace the change.

During the party, Celia was inundated with requests to sign copies of the book, which has already attracted praise:

‘A big hug of a book. Manages to be both realistic and optimistic… A lifesaver' Aggie MacKenzie, television presenter and journalist

'This book will guide us as we seek closeness without dependence or intrusiveness. A thoughtful and compassionate exploration of a complex parenting phase' Terri Apter, author of The Myth of Maturity: What teenagers need from parents to become adults
