Novel Writers: JJ Bola
Thu 29 June 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
With colourful characters and seamless prose, No Place to Call Home by Kinshasa born, London raised JJ Bola is a tale of belonging, identity and immigration, of hope and hopelessness, of loss — not by death, but by distance — and, by no means the least, of love.
Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books. In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
