This venue is for Kingston staff and friends from the wider community. While our students get priority in the main hall, you are still most welcome to join us, and to have your book signed by the author afterwards. Please 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!
