About this event

All Kingston students are welcome to join us on 8th December at 4pm for an author talk and book signing from our 2021 KU Big Read author Okechukwu Nzelu. This will be a fantastic opportunity for everyone to ask him questions about his university experiences, his book The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney and even have their book signed!

Okechukwu Nzelu is a Manchester-based writer. In 2015 he was the recipient of a Northern Writers' Award from New Writing North. In 2020 his debut novel, The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney (Dialogue Books/Little,Brown), won a Betty Trask Award and was shortlisted for the Betty Trask Prize, the Desmond Elliott Prize, and the Polari First Book Prize. In 2021, it was selected for the Kingston University Big Read. He is a regular contributor to Kinfolk magazine. His second novel, Here Again Now, will be published by Dialogue Books/Little, Brown in March 2022. He is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at Lancaster University.

This is our 7th year of the KU Big Read and it was created as a way of making our incoming students as well as returning students, staff and alumni feel welcomed and included in the Kingston community. The Big Read gives people something in common before the first day. We hope to see you there!
