Karina Lickorish Quinn – Leeds Library
Leeds Central Library, LS1 3AB, May 19, 2022 7:00 pm
We welcome Karina Lickorish Quinn for our next author talk taking part in the stunning setting of Leeds Central Library.
Karina is a bilingual, Peruvian-British writer raised in Lima, the English Midlands and New York. Her work has appeared in The Offing, Asymptote and elsewhere, and her short fiction features in Un Nuevo Sol, the first major anthology of British-Latinx writers. In 2016, she was shortlisted for The White Review’s short story prize.
Karina will discuss her debut novel The Dust Never Settles with Sarah Tyson, founder of Books Up North, whose mission it is to bring outstanding literary events to the north.
The Dust Never Settles sweeps from the bustling beaches and teeming salsa halls of contemporary Lima to the rise and fall of the Inca empire; from vengeful Andean gods to fishermen crammed into local ceviche bars and a civil war that will devastate the nation. Books will be available to purchase, and there is the opportunity to have them signed by the author.
Join us for an evening of literary conversation and enjoy a drink on arrival as part of the ticket price.
