Sunday 3 July
14:30 – 15:45 FREE
With writers Leye Adenle, Nikhil Singh and Frances Mensah Williams. Chaired by Zahrah Nesbitt-Ahmed.
From crime writing to international women’s fiction, sci-fi and fantasy – what are the boundaries between genre and literary fiction? How does the battle of genre categories play out when it comes to trends in African writing? Join these writers to discuss their latest books: Easy Motion Tourist (Leye Adenle) – a crime thriller set in Lagos; Taty Went West (Nikhil Singh) – an illustrated post-apocalyptic narrative, and From Pasta to Pigfoot: Second Helpings (Frances Mensah Williams) – a ‘coming-of-culture’ novel set between London and Accra.
