05.12.2020: Twentyin2020 Online Book Festival

November 20, 2020

Sat, 5 December 2020

14:00 – 19:00 GMT

Twentyin2020 showcases 20 Black British authors, many of whom have made their writing debut with Jacaranda, a leading independent publisher. 

The online festival will explore the Black experience through the work of the authors. Book lovers will be able to attend sessions including ‘Empowering Black women through Romance Writing’, ‘Between Two Worlds: Exploring Mixed-Race Identity’ and ‘The Poets of #TwentyIn2020’. There will also be conversations with Stella Oni, the author of Deadly Sacrifice, who’ll discuss being a Black female crime writer and Shola von Reinhold whose book, Lote, investigates the censoring of Black queer voices in the arts and literature.

This event is co-produced by TGRG and FANE Productions. A portion of the profits from this event will be donated to the BCA, the event’s charity of choice.

£5 EARLY BIRD | £10 FULL PRICE | £20 TICKET + BOOK VOUCHER
