About the Event
What happens when you do the right thing for the wrong reason?
When black babysitter Emira is apprehended at a supermarket for ‘kidnapping’ the white child she’s actually babysitting, it sets off an explosive chain of events.
Join the author of the fiction debut of 2020, Kiley Reid, as she discusses her literary sensation Such A Fun Age with journalist and author Yomi Adegoke. Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2020, and with film and TV rights already optioned by Emmy award-winning Lena Waithe, it went straight into the bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic following overwhelming critical acclaim.
Now, to celebrate publication of the paperback, Kiley will be in conversation exploring what made Such A Fun Age resonate so sharply with readers across the globe, why the narrative is so relevant to the way we live now, and how moments of conflict can change people’s lives.
With candour, empathy and satirical insight, Kiley will touch on the intersection of money, class and race, the messy dynamics of privilege, and the complicated reality of being a grown-up. Don’t miss the chance to spend an evening with the voice of a generation.
