Join Bernardine Evaristo for an unmissable live event at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, where she’ll be in conversation discussing her new inspirational book Manifesto

Bernardine’s 2019 Booker win – the first by a Black woman -- was a revolutionary moment both for British culture and for her. After over three decades as a trailblazing writer, teacher and activist, she moved from the margins to centre stage, taking her place in the spotlight at last. Her journey was a long one, but she made it, and she made history. Manifesto is her intimate and inspirational, no-holds-barred account of how she did it, refusing to let any barriers stand in her way. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Bernardine discuss her creative rebellion against the mainstream and her life-long commitment to the imaginative exploration of ‘untold’ stories. Drawing deeply on her own experiences, you can expect her to offer a vital contribution to current conversations around social issues such as race, class, feminism, sexuality and aging. 

This unique event is not one to be missed. Bernardine will give inspiration about how to be unstoppable – in your craft, your work, your life. Don’t miss Bernardine Evaristo’s manifesto for never giving up.

This event is hosted in partnership with Penguin Live & Southbank Centre.
