Julia Roberts celebrates her book launch with Simon Wilson!


Will Gowing It's great to be back at QVC after my week away on the slopes, I hope you're all well!

My first 'job' back at work was to attend a party for Julia Roberts, hosted by her good friend Simon Wilson. 

Julia's book One Hundred Lengths of the Pool has been so well received by you that Simon wanted to raise a glass and throw a bit of a 'do'! 

I headed along to the Butler & Wilson store for a quick chat with Julia & Simon, don't forget to watch all of my video below to see what happened during the party…

One Hundred Lengths of the Pool is still available and Julia will be talking more about her book on QVC this Saturday during Anything Goes from 8pm. 

See you soon,

    Hi Will,
    How was skiing? Hope you had a fab time…not that you needed to go away…we’ve had feet upon feet here!

    I was very lucky to attend the book launch party at B&W for Julia and I had such a wonderful time. Both Julia and Simon are such lovely people to talk to and are both so sincere. Thank you so much for a great evening – unfortunately I have not finished your book yet Julia but I am hoping to have time to over the Easter weekend so can not wait! I am also looking forward to the next B&W show for both the jewellery and to see Simon and hear his fantastic stories.
    Many Thanks once again
    p.s. loved the cake – was it F&M by any chance? Such a light texture, soft icing and juicy fruit x
