Event description
A literary conversation between two groups of BAME women – published writers responding creatively to the stories of the SBS support group.

About this Event

Launching an anthology of writings, Turning the Page, by the SBS Survivors' Group

Southall Black Sisters ends its 40th anniversary year with a unique evening, crowning a year- long series of events to celebrate its survival and reflect on its history. The anthology represents an intimate engagement, a two-way literary conversation, between established writers and emotionally vulnerable women who have found relief in writing about their troubled lives.

The survivors' group at Southall Black Sisters have spent six months writing their stories in the company of Rahila Gupta.

Jackie Kay, Imitiaz Dharkar, Moniza Alvi, Meena Kandasamy, Esi Yankey and Rahila Gupta have written new work in response to the stories written by the SBS women. Their new work will be published in the book and they will read from this and other work alongside the SBS women.

Be uplifted! Break your hearts and recommit yourself to the cause during the 16 days of activism against violence against women.
