Join Caleb Azumah Nelson as he discusses his highly anticipated debut novel Open Water. It’s a stunning, spellbinding story about two Black British artists falling in and out of love. Caleb will be in conversation about this achingly beautiful love story, which also gives a potent insight into race and masculinity.

Caleb will speak about his writing process, how London influences his work whilst also touching on the themes of the book including art, love, police violence and black masculinity. He'll be in conversation with poet and playwright Yomi Sode. 

This is your chance to hear from the author behind one of the most hotly tipped books for 2021. And to pose your own questions directly to him.
