Ruth Rogers on The River Café at 30:
Ruth and Rose Gray opened The River Cafe in 1987. The restaurant has been awarded the ‘Best Italian Restaurant of the Year’ and a Michelin Star in 1997, which they have retained ever since.  In 1995 Ruth published her first cookbook with Rose Gray, The River Café Cookbook, and presented a 12-part series for Channel 4, The Italian Kitchen. They published a further 10 cookbooks, all of which have been on the best seller list. River Cafe 30 by Ruth Rogers, Rose Gray, Sian Wyn Owen and Joseph Trivelli was published in October 2017 marking 30 years since the River Cafe first opened its doors. 

Laura Bates on #MeToo:

He will, quite literally, be bowling us over with some of the usual QI hilarity.

Ben Okri on Collaboration
Ben Okri is a Nigerian poet and novelist considered one of the finest African writers within the postcolonial tradition. In 1991 he was awarded the Booker prize for his novel The Famished Road. Ben has since published a succession of criticall acclaimed novels, poems and essays. 

James Young on Can Robots Love Us?:
James Young is a broadcaster and television presenter. In 2012, a tragic accident led to him losing his left arm and half of his left leg. James saw an advert by the Konami gaming company looking for someone to be the recipient of a high-tech, bespoke prosthetic limb, he applied and was the winner from applicants from across the world. 
James will discuss his investigation into how robots are being developed to engage with us on an emotional level, exploring the limits of the human-robot connection.

Rachel Clarke on Your Life in My Hands:
Rachel Clarke is an NHS hospital doctor who specialises in caring for patients at the end of life. Prior to her career in medicine, she worked as a television journalist, producing and directing current affairs documentaries on subjects such as Al Qaeda, the Gulf War before deciding at the age of 29 to retrain as a doctor. 
Rachel's debut book, Your Life in My Hands, certainly won't disappoint.
