5pm - 6.30pm
"Girl, Woman, Other" is the latest novel by award-winning Nigerian author Bernadine Evaristo, a love song to black womanhood that crackles with life, following the lives and struggles of modern black British women and their stories of families, friends and lovers.
Joyfully polyphonic and vibrantly contemporary, this is a gloriously new kind of history, a novel of our times: celebratory, ever-dynamic and utterly irresistible.
Bernardine Evaristo is the Anglo-Nigerian award-winning author of seven other books of fiction and verse fiction that explore aspects of the African diaspora: past, present, real, imagined. Her writing also spans short fiction, reviews, essays, drama and writing for BBC radio. She is Professor of Creative Writing at Brunel University London and Vice Chair of the Royal Society of Literature. As a literary activist for inclusion she has founded several successful initiatives including Spread the Word writer development agency (1995 - ongoing); The Complete Works mentoring scheme for poets of colour (2007-2017) and the Brunel International African Poetry Prize (2012 - ongoing).
This event is in partnership with Writing on the Wall for Feminist Book Fortnight.
