In Conversation: Olumide Popoola & Sarah Ladipo Manyika

online event in English

Loving Black Lives.

Goethe Pop Up Seattle welcomes Olumide Popoola for a conversation with San Francisco-based writer Sarah Ladipo Manyika. Our book club pick for the month of July is Olumide Popoola’s “WHEN WE SPEAK OF NOTHING”–a novel on being young, Black, and Queer.

How do writers take an idea and turn it into a story that readers can “fall into”? Do characters have their own voice or does an author make them speak as they do? And how does writing a novel shape the author? Both novelists will read from their works and share what inspires their writing – past, present, and future.
