In this Mood Series event, a free preview event in partnership with Festival of Literary Diversity(FOLD), four exciting new authors discuss novels that tackle notions of place, home and relationships with powerful and moving prose.

What does it mean to belong to a place, and how has the pandemic altered our connection to those around us? Authors Francesca Ekwuyasi (Butter, Honey, Pig, Bread), Yara El-Ghadban (I am Ariel Sharon), Sheung-King (You Are Eating and Orange. You Are Naked),and Danny Ramadan (The Clothesline Swing) discuss the stories behind their incredible novels and the places they call home in a discussion that will leave you thinking about that ever-evolving question: Who am I and where do I belong?
