Celeste Ng, author of the critically acclaimed bestsellers Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere, joins us to talk about her work. Her gripping novels explore themes of race, class and privilege through family dynamics and ideas of home and exile in 1970’s America and the present day. Celeste questions what it means to belong; asking what happens if long-held beliefs are challenged by new events. A writer of short fiction and essays, as well as a multi-award-winning novelist, Celeste will discuss her craft, her literary influences and what it’s like to have your work adapted for television with host Anita Sethi.

Doors open at 6.30pm, event starts at 7pm
