Open University

Candice Carty-Williams’s joyous and vital debut Queenie had readers falling in love with its fabulous and flawed protagonist, and her latest work promises nothing less. Award-winning writer and creator of the Guardian and 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize, Carty-Williams introduces her new funny and heart-warming novel People Person: a window on the steadily-unraveling world of aspiring lifestyle influencer Dimple Pennington. Expect to fall in love all over again in this event chaired by Paula Akpan.
