Dark Chapter reading with Winnie M Li - 29th June 19:00


Inspired by her own real-life experience of a violent crime and its aftermath, DARK CHAPTER has been listed by Stylist Magazine among their 'Top 10 Debut Novels of 2017.’  The book has received extensive media attention, including The Mail on Sunday, BBC World News, BBC Radio Ulster, RTE Radio One, The Pool, and The Metro.

In writing the book, Winnie used crime fiction as a means of exploring the same issue that is also the focus of her academic and activist work: narratives around sexual assault. In this exclusive session, Winnie will be in conversation with her friend (and Peckham resident) Anne Bowers, who flew with her to Belfast for the trial against her perpetrator and has been an important part of the journey towards hope, renewal, and impact.

‘Not only highly readable, but also incredibly important… It is also deeply courageous.’ — Wasafiri Magazine
