For those in New York, here is a free, high-profile literary event to mark on your calendars.
Scottish Sierra Leonean novelist Aminatta Forna who is also a Windham Campbell Prize winner and Nigerian novelist and Caine Prize winner, E. C. Osondu will meet up to chat about all things literary, alongside novelist and Pulitzer-winning journalist, Lorraine Adams.
The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 19th, at 7pm.
The venue is Hotel Particulier (4-6 Grand Street between Varick & 6th Avenue in SoHo), a stunning space that W Magazine has described as “a modern re-imagining of the eighteenth-century salon.”
WORD will have selected titles by the speakers for sale, including Forna’s newest novel, The Hired Man (Grove/Atlantic, October paperback), at the event.
Don’t forget that the event is free and open to the public.
Best part? There’ll be refreshments!
