Join writer Lola Olufemi for an open discussion on two books that offer profound insights into the marginalising effects of white heteropatriarchal societies. Preti Taneja’s Aftermath, a lament for a friend killed in a London attack in 2019, is a genre-bending book about the systemic nature of atrocity. Hannah Black’s Tuesday or September or The End is a speculative fable in which aliens unleash violence towards justice. Reading the books in advance is not required to enjoy this engaging conversation.
