In Conversation: Dawn French & Bernardine Evaristo
In a voice that’s unmistakable for its raw honesty and piercing clarity, the writer and performer meditates on creative connection in a streamed event.
Streaming from the Royal Festival Hall, the number one-bestselling author and comedian discusses her new novel, Because of You.
In conversation with Booker Prize winner Bernardine Evaristo, Dawn French gives you the inside scoop on her arresting page-turner about mothers and daughters, love and loss, mistakes and regret.
Taking on the age-old debate of nature vs nurture, French’s latest novel, arriving five years after her last, is a meditation on motherhood and what makes us who we are.
Expect a conversation suffused with Dawn’s signature humour and warmth.
This event is pre-recorded exclusively for the Southbank Centre.
Presented in partnership with Penguin Live.
