A panel of distinguished literary women – Arifa Akbar, Sara Collins and Ade Solanke – spark conversation with Kate Mosse about their successes and the legacy of internationally acclaimed novelist and Women’s Prize for Fiction winner Andrea Levy in an online event via Zoom on Thursday 3 September at 6pm. This date would have been the Festival 2020 press night of The Long Song, Suhayla El-Bushra’s new adaptation of Andrea Levy’s novel (now postponed to 2021).
The discussion will encompass the seminal role of race and gender in Andrea Levy’s and the panellists’ own writing, and their perception of the progress and influence of Black female writers in contemporary theatre and literature. There will also be an opportunity for audience questions.
This event has now taken place, however an archive recording of the discussion is available.
