Sunday Salon: Enquire Within at MWF
The sessions I attended included The Morning Read which featured Carrie Tiffany, Uzodinma Iweala, Sefi Atta, Honey Brown, A Fine Romance with Stephanie Laurens, Rachel Treasure and Su Dharmapala. John Boyne in conversation and then a Twelfth Planet Press event in the evening!
I have read both Carrie Tiffany and Uzodinma Iweala before, but walked out thinking I really need to read them again. Honey Brown and Sefi Atta are both new to me, and I do think I will read them eventually, particularly Sefi Atta as I do find Nigerian writers very interesting to read.
While I do have some notes to write up for the other session, I am not going to be doing that tonight. Instead I am watching the second part of Howzat! which is a mini series about the early days of World Series Cricket. Then it will be bed and time for work on Monday again.
In the mean time here are my current and next reads.
The Angel by Tiffany Reisz, The Mirrored World by Debra Dean and Faithful Place by Tana French
Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan, History of Love by Nicole Krauss or The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
