Join prize winning authors Diana Evans and Bernardine Evaristo to discuss their latest novels Ordinary People and Girl, Woman, Other. Both books have taken the book world by storm and garnered an impressive list of fans and fantastic reviews.
Ordinary People, winner of the South Bank Sky Arts Award and shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction among several others, is set in London to an exhilarating soundtrack.
It is an intimate study of identity and parenthood, sex and grief, friendship and ageing, and the fragile architecture of love. Girl, Woman, Other, currently shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019 and the Gordon Burn Prize 2019, follows the lives of twelve very different characters of varied cultural backgrounds, sexualities and classes.
Primarily black British women, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and over 100 years. Join Bernardine and Diana for a night of top black British woman’s writing.
