Event description

Description

Join local author Yara Rodrigues Fowler as she discusses her stunning debut novel, Stubborn Archivist (longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize) - a lyrical reflection on growing up in a Brazilian-British household, of finding your space within different cultures and of learning to live in a traumatized body.

I read Stubborn Archivist in a ravenous gulp. It’s stunning: so articulate about what it means to live between two languages and countries, tenderly unravelling the knots of unbelonging - Olivia Laing

Yara was chosen as one of The Observer’s hottest-tipped debut novelists of 2019. Don’t miss the chance to hear Yara, who grew up in Balham, talk about this brilliant debut novel.

Venue: Balham Oxfam, SW12 9BW

Price: £5 or £16 including a copy of Stubborn Archivist (RRP £14.99)
