An evening with Kit de Waal with The Brum Radio Bookshow
Tuesday 5th July 2016
19:00 at Waterstones, Birmingham
We are incredibly excited to have Birmingham born author, Kit de Waal, in store with us to discuss her novel, My Name Is Leon.
My Name Is Leon has been described as-
"beautiful and heart-breaking – I cried buckets of tears for Leon and his family’ -
Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of ‘The Last Act of Love’
"Authentic and beautiful, urgent and honest, this novel does what only the best do: it quietly makes room in your heart."
Chris Cleave, bestselling author of The Other Hand
Kit de Waal was born in Birmingham to an Irish mother and Caribbean father and worked for fifteen years in criminal and family law. She has been awarded the Bridport Flash Fiction Prize in both 2014 and 2015, the SI Leeds Literary Reader's Choice Prize 2014, and second place in both the Costa Short Story Award 2014 and the Bath Short Story Award 2014.
This event is in conjunction with the Brum Radio Book Show.
Brum Radio is Birmingham's brand new independent station for culture, music and all the city has to offer.
Brum Radio will be recording the event for later transmission and would love as many book groups and individuals as possible to make this their book choice, and then come along, meet the author and ask questions.
Brum Radio can be found at brumradio.com and the Brum Radio Book show can be contacted via Twitter @brumradio_books .
Show hosts Mike and Blake said, 'We look forward to meeting you and talking about this brilliant book!'
