Meet Adunni, a teenage girl born into a rural Nigerian village. Aged fourteen, she is a commodity, a wife, a servant. She is also smart, funny, curious, with a spirit and joy infectious to those around her. And despite her situation going from bad to worse, she has a plan to escape: she will find her ‘louding voice’ and get her education, so that she can speak up for herself – and all the girls who came before her.
Author, Abi Daré will discuss the inspiration for her debut novel Girl with the Louding Voice followed by a Q&A.
Girl with the Louding Voice is available from Newham Bookshop.
