Description

ELAINE CASTILLO, AMINATA FORNA

Moderator: John Freeman

Info: 10:30am-12 noon, STUDIO 1398

Ah, were there a word for that feeling of discovering something truly exceptional slightly before the rest of the world. Follow the work of John Freeman and you may need it sooner than later. The critic, author and editor of Freeman’s anthologies has a knack for championing the works of lesser-known literary giants. Nowhere is this more true than with Elaine Castillo and Aminatta Forna. In praise of Castillo’s debut novel, America Is Not the Heart, Vogue posited that she “is part of a younger generation of American writers instilling literature with a layered sense of identity.” Forna won the Commonwealth Writers’ Best Book Award and was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction. Her latest work, Happiness, follows two strangers’ increasingly intertwined lives. Welcome to your new favourite reads.
