An Audience with
Spend an intimate and inspiring evening with the founder of the award-winning publication gal-dem, Liv Little, as she celebrates the publication of her deliciously gritty and strikingly bold debut novel, Rosewater.
Live in conversation for this exclusive launch event, Liv will explore the inspiration behind her story of Elsie and the themes of love, friendship and the realities of modern life.
Elsie is a sexy, funny, and fiercely independent woman in South London. But, at just 28, she is also tired. Though she spends her days writing tender poetry in her journal, her nights are spent working long hours for minimum wage at a neighbourhood gay bar.
The difficulty of being estranged from her family, struggle of being continually rejected from jobs, and fear of never making money doing what she loves, is too great. But Elsie is determined to keep the faith, for a little longer at least. Things will surely turn around. They have to. Can Elsie steady herself and not fall through the cracks?
With the opportunity to ask Liv your own searching questions about everything from her top writing tips to the importance of bi-representation in literature, this promises to be a unique evening with one of the most brilliant queer writers of the moment.
‘A wonderfully fresh, zesty and sexy debut novelist who is putting black queer lives, loves and longings centre stage, where they belong.’ Bernardine Evaristo
