Abi Daré in Conversation

Friday 23 October, 7-8pm

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.
