We are incredibly excited to announe that we have the winner of the 2016 Man Booker Prize, Paul Beatty, joining us in store to discuss The Sellout.


A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, The Sellout showcases a comic genius at the top of his game.


PAUL BEATTY is the author of the novels Slumberland, Tuff, The White Boy Shuffle and The Sellout


, which won the Man Booker Prize in 2016. He lives in New York City.


Dr Kehinde Andrews is Associate Professor of Sociology, and has been leading the development of the Black Studies Degree at Birmingham City University. 
He recently co-edited Blackness in Britain (2016) and is working on his next book Black Radicalism. His first book was Resisting Racism: Race, Inequality and the Black Supplementary School Movement (2013). Kehinde is director of the Centre for Critical Social Research; chair of the Harambee Organisation Of Black Unity; and co-chair of the Black Studies Association. 



We hope you will join us for what promises to be an incredible evening.
