Our 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.
The discussion encompasses 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.
This event took place online, on what would have been the press night for Suhayla El-Bushra's new stage adaptation of Andrea Levy's The Long Song.
We are glad to make this recording available to watch free of charge, with the kind permission of the panellists. In place of a fee, we’d be grateful if you’d consider donating a sum of your choice to a charity such as the Theatre Artists Fund which is supporting freelancers in urgent financial need at this very difficult time, if you are able to do so. Thank you.
