Event Details

Join us for lunch and a chat with author Daisy Johnson, who will be in conversation with Guardian books site editor and Guardian Books podcast host Sian Cain.

In 2018 Johnson, 27 at the time, became the youngest person to be shortlisted for the Booker Prize in the history of the award; Everything Under, her reimagining of Oedipus Rex as a tale of mothers and daughters, was lauded for its magical realism and modern-day mythology. Now 29, Johnson will be joining us to talk about her writing process, how it feels to have won multiple awards for her writing, and where she plans to go from here.

This event is part of Fresh Voices, which showcases inspirational young people from the worlds of literature, activism, stage, and design.


Complimentary lunch will be provided.
