An event put together by LSE Library, Modern Films, Simon and Schuster and discussing the woman behind the books that enthralled millions. Jackie Collins undeniably offered a generation a new type of sex education; one that centred women’s agency and desires. An entrepreneur and cultural icon, selling 500 million books worldwide, Jackie wrote feminist fantasies for her readers in a transitional era, opening up the conversations around sexual agency, consent and slut shaming that we still have today.

In light of the new documentary release Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story, Naomi Paxton hosted a special Q&A event with the film’s director, Laura Fairrie. We were also joined by Melanie Blake, bestselling author, playwright, columnist and legendary talent agent, and Suzanne Baboneau, Managing Director at Simon & Schuster and Jackie’s editor of many years, who discussed the legacy of Jackie’s work, her impact on women’s fiction, and the writers who picked up the torch.
