New Writing South is delighted to be working in collaboration with University of Brighton, supporting their Big Read programme, which this year focuses on Monique Roffey’s Costa Award prize-winning novel, The Mermaid of Black Conch (2020).
Together with the University of Brighton, we are very excited to welcome author Monique Roffey to read from her celebrated novel at a special Big Read online event on Thursday 13 May at 6.30pm.
The reading will be followed by a discussion about the novel with Dr Vedrana Velickovic and an opportunity for you to join in the conversation directly with the author by posing your questions to her – this can be done in advance using the booking form below, or added to the chat on the night.
13 May 2021 - 13 April 2021
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Free – but booking required
