Join Diana Evans, author of the best selling Ordinary People. Insightful and incisive, Diana Evans is a writer rooted in the 21st Century seeking to deliver meaning and understanding at a time of often overwhelming noise and distraction.
She will discuss the themes arising from her closely observed fiction – family life, marriage, children and black culture – before taking audience questions.
The inaugural winner of the Orange Award for New Writers, Diana Evans is the author of three novels; Ordinary People, The Wonder and 26a.
Ordinary People was selected in the New Yorker Best Books of 2018, and shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction.
This event will be followed with a drinks reception in the Waterhouse Café and a book signing through the festival bookseller, Blackwell’s.
Liverpool Literary Festival is supported by Student Roost and Bruntwood.
