#ReadingWomen: Siblings

Wednesday, 12 February

In this episode Zing Tsjeng is joined by chef, bestselling cookbook author and sustainability champion Melissa Hemsley, radio producer, podcast host and writer Joe Haddow and creator and co-host of the Mostly Lit podcast, Raifa Rafiq.

The theme of today's #ReadingWomen book club is siblings. The panel discuss three books that, in various ways, have brothers and sisters at their heart. They are A Spell of Winter by Helen Dunmore, the Prize's very first winner back in 1996, May We Be Forgiven by A. M. Homes which won in 2013, and The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney, 2016's winner.

Every fortnight, join Zing Tsjeng, editor at VICE, and inspirational guests, including Dolly Alderton, Stanley Tucci, Liv Little and Scarlett Curtis as they celebrate the best fiction written by women. They'll discuss the diverse back-catalogue of Women’s Prize-winning books spanning a generation, explore the life-changing books that sit on other women’s bookshelves and talk about what the future holds for women writing today. The Women’s Prize for Fiction is one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, and this series will also take you behind the scenes throughout 2020 as we explore the history of the Prize in its 25th year and gain unique access to the shortlisted authors and the 2020 Prize winner. Sit back and enjoy.
