Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi & Geovani Martins

Migrants and Misfits

Manchester-based Ugandan author Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi and Brazilian writer Geovani Martins live half a globe apart, but their searing short story collections both centre on being an outsider. Makumbi’s Manchester Happened features moving stories of Ugandans living in England, while Martins’s The Sun On My Head is set amid the inequalities of a notorious Brazilian favela. Chaired by director of Rio de Janeiro’s FLUPP literary festival, Julio Ludemir.

Part of our Indigenous Voices series of events.

Vote for The Sun on My Head by Geovani Martins in the First Book Award.

Tickets go on sale at 8:30am on Tuesday 25 June.
