Raven Leilani in conversation with Bolu Babalola
Thursday 21st January 2021
19:30 at Waterstones, Online Events
Join us for this hugely exciting event with New York Times Bestselling debut author Raven Leilani, as she talks to Bolu Babalola about her novel Luster on its day of publication in the UK.
Sharp, funny and affecting, Leilani’s firecracker of a debut charts Edie’s awkward slalom through modern life, from dead-end hook ups and crushed ambitions to a romantic liaison that has disaster written all over it.
Raven Leilani's work has been published in Granta, The Yale Review, The Cut, and New England Review, among other publications. Leilani is a National Book Foundation 5 under 35 honoree, and she is the recipient of the 2020 Kirkus Prize and Center For Fiction first novel prize.
Raven will be in conversation with Bolu Babalola, journalist, scriptwriter and author of Sunday Times bestseller Love in Colour.
