Closure: Contemporary Black British Short Stories (Book Launch)

Thursday 29th October

As the narrative mode across cultures and time, the short story form wings from oral “folktales” to myths of origin, from parables of caution to contemporary narratives of disclosure, disquiet and discovery.

Closure is the first Black British short story anthology in 15 years. Readers on this launch night will include Desiree Reynolds, Jennifer Makumbi, Muli Amaye and Pete Kalu. Time: 7pm.

Free (over 14s to adults)
