Patrice Lawrence on The Lonely Londoners
Fri 23 Aug 13:00 - 14:30
Join novelist Patrice Lawrence for a close look at The Lonely Londoners, the 1956 novel by Trinidadian author Samuel Selvon, and one of the first to shine a light on the poor, working-class Windrush Generation. It’s a devastating yet funny account of immigrant experience – and one of the great 20th century London novels. Expect an open discussion from the start; read it ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
