All ages welcome
Manchester Literature Festival
The first Black woman and the first Black British author to win the Booker Prize for her stunning novel Girl, Woman, Other, Manchester Literature Festival is thrilled to welcome Anglo-Nigerian writer Bernardine Evaristo for a special event to celebrate her new book Manifesto: On Never Giving Up. Bernardine has spent three decades as a trailblazing writer, mentor and activist and Manifesto is her intimate and inspirational, no-holds-barred account of how she did it. Bernardine will discuss her ground-breaking work including her many brilliant novels (Mr Loverman, Blonde Roots), her poetry and her theatre dramas with fellow writer and MLF Patron Jackie Kay.
This event is sponsored by Weightmans.
