Price £15

An exclusive evening with author Bernardine Evaristo, in conversation with Samira Ahmed about her Booker Prize-winning novel Girl, Woman, Other.

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? 

Bernardine will discuss these questions and more as she shares feelings around being the first black woman to win the Booker Prize and why she considers it such an exciting time to be a black female writer.

Samira Ahmed is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, presenting Front Row on Radio 4 and Newswatch on BBC1, and Samira regularly introduces NT Live broadcasts.

The evening will also feature readings from Girl, Woman, Other, which 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.
