London -25 Nov 2022
With Kamila Shamsie and Chibundu Onuzo
Enjoy a sparkling drinks reception followed by a delicous lunch with award winning writers Kamila Shamsie & Chibundu Onuzo.
Kamila Shamsie's last novel Home Fire won the Women's Prize for Fiction and was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and shortlisted for the Cost Best Novel Award. Her eagerly awaited new novel Best of Friends follows the friendship of two girls who have known eachother since they were 14 in Pakistan. Three decades later, leading very different lives, their friendship is put to the test when a ghost from their past reappears.
Chibundu Onuzo was born in Lagos and her life so far spans two military dictatorships, one internet revolution, two boarding schools, five grandmothers and a book deal at nineteen which won a Betty Trask Award among many others. Funny, painful, surprising, Sankofa follows the story of mixed race Anna who leaves London to go in search of the West Indian father she never knew. It is a gripping story exploring race, identity and what we pass on to our children.
