Event details

In this free, livestreamed event, Leone Ross will read from her latest novel, This One Sky Day, in discussion with Bethan Evans.

Leone Ross is a novelist, short story writer, editor/copy-editor, and reviewer of fiction. She was born in Coventry, England, and when she was six years old migrated with her mother to Jamaica, where she was raised and educated. After graduating from the University of the West Indies in 1990, Ross returned to England to do her master’s degree in International Journalism at City University, in London, where she now lives. Ross’s writing is genre-bending and world-tilting, revelling in the magical realist and surrealist.

Her latest novel, This One Sky Day, is published by Faber & Faber in the UK and as Popisho in the USA with Farrar, Straus & Giroux. It will be out in paperback in 2022 (with Picador USA and Faber). This One Sky Day was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize 2021 and longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction 2022. Ross is described by The New Statesman as "one of the six most cutting-edge novelists" writing today.

Bethan Evans is a PhD candidate at NTU, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council through the Midlands3Cities doctoral training partnership. She specialises in black British short fiction, and her areas of interest are postcolonial and black British literature, narrative form, and the publishing industry.

This event will be online via YouTube Live.
