Award-winning actor and director Kerry Washington is coming to Manchester on the book tour for her memoir titled Thicker Than Water. The Manchester date is one of only two which will take place in the UK, with the other being held down in London. 

Readers will spend an evening with one of Hollywood's most influential stars for an intimate conversation spotlighting her experiences both on and off-screen. Kerry will take audiences behind the scenes of her extraordinary life - as an artist, an advocate, an entrepreneur, a mother, a daughter, a wife, and a Black woman.

Joining her in Manchester will be comedian and talk show host James Corden. Having successfully hosted a chat show in the USA for many years, Corden has come to be well liked by American audiences as well as those back home. 

Corden will be Washington’s latest guest on her book tour. These guests are said to “embrace the journey to find their truest selves and a deeper sense of belonging in the world.”
