Helen Oyeyemi in Conversation

Event Closed

More Details

Helen Oyeyemi’s first novel, The Icarus Girl, was written when she was just a teenager and published when she was 21. Since then, Oyeyemi has gone on to write a further five books and, along the way, has been listed on Granta’s prestigious Best of Young British Novelists list. Her collection of short stories, What is Not Yours is Not Yours, was released earlier this year to great praise, with TIME Magazine noting it as the ‘Best Book of 2016 So Far’. Jason Lee will talk to Oyeyemi about her work, what draws her to fairytales and the process behind reinventing them. 

Helen Oyeyemi’s visit is supported by the British Council.
