Event description

Description

Don’t miss this special event with Alex Wheatle, the brilliant Brixton Bard, as he discusses his life as a writer and his fiction, including Home Girl, the latest book in his multi-award winning Crongton series.

Alex Wheatle is the real deal; he writes with heart and authenticity, books that make you laugh and worry and cry and hold your breath. It's a pity there's only one of him. - Kit de Waal

Home Girl is the story of Naomi, a teenage girl growing up fast (too fast) in the UK care system. Fast-paced and funny, as well as tender and tragic and full of courage, this is Alex Wheatle’s most moving and personal novel to date.

Alex Wheatle is an inspirer. He is a vital writer. He is a prince among men. Long may he reign. - Lemn Sissay

Suitable for ages 12+

Venue: The Ballroom, Balham Bowls Club, SW12 8QX

Price: £5 or £10 including a copy of Home Girl (RRP £7.99)
