Ayobami Adebayo in Conversation: A Reading of Stay with Me

Where: Spike Island, Bristol

When: Friday 9 June 6.30-8pm

On Friday the 9th of June at 6.30pm, Ayobami Adebayo will be reading from and in conversation about her debut novel Stay with Me as part of Spike Island’s Novel Writers series. Born in lagos in 1988, Ayobami has an MA in creative writing from the University of East Anglia and has had her fiction appear in The Weaverbird Collection, Lawino Magazine and East Jamine Review.

Stay with Me was shortlisted for the 2013 Kwani? Manuscript Prize and the 2017 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. It will be published later this year as part of the Kwani Series.

This is a devastating, exquisite story on the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood, unravelling against the social and political turbulence of the 1980s.

Tickets are £5 (£3 concessions) and you can book here.
