AdvocAid are delighted to be hosting another virtual Q&A discussion with another wonderful author! For our first event of 2021, we will be joined by Louise Hare, to discuss her book This Lovely City. This is the fourth in a series of author Q&A sessions for the Bomba Book Club, designed to help readers come together virtually to discuss books that touch on themes of justice, gender and Africa.

You don’t need to be a book club member to take part, but we recommend that you have read This Lovely City in order to get the most from the discussion.

Please do share this event with anyone who may be interested, whether they’re a Bomba Book Club member or not!

All of the funds raised from this event will be going to AdvocAid– a women’s rights organisation in Sierra Leone. Your support will mean that we can continue to ensure access to justice for women and girls in contact with the law, during the Covid-19 crisis.

We will be sharing details and the meeting link with you all a bit closer to the day of the event, so stay tuned, and we look forward to discussing This Lovely City with you and Louise on the 14th of January.

Thank you for your support.

We are very pleased to announce that Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City, will be joining us for the first in our 2021 Candid Conversations series!

It’s the 1950s, London is recovering from the Blitz and people are rebuilding their lives whilst others are embarking the Empire Windrush en route to London for a new start. As the first wave of migrants from the Caribbean arrives in the UK, the reader follows the lives of a group of acquaintances and friends who settle in South London, including a couple in particular: Lawrie and Evie.

Louise has written a beautiful debut novel about hardship and kinship and we cannot wait to discuss This Lovely City with all of you.

Sign up for what’ll be a fantastic evening!
