Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and great books.

Shortlisted for the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction, Stay with Me by Lagos-born Ayòbámi Adébáyò is a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 1980s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings.
