About the Event
What can this new decade mean for writers and artists of colour in Britain? How can we ensure that the explosion of books and art by people, and particularly women, of colour aren’t a fad but are the foundations of our future?
These are some of the themes that will be discussed by Bernardine Evaristo whose acclaimed novel Girl, Woman, Other has been described as ‘beautiful’, ‘triumphant’, ‘exceptional’ and a ‘novel of our times’ and was named by Barack Obama as one of his favourite books of 2019.
Bernardine will talk about Girl, Woman, Other, how it feels to be the first black woman to win the Booker Prize and why she considers it such an exciting time to be a black female writer.
