#ReadingWomen: Girlhood

Tuesday, 15 September

Zing Tsjeng is joined by Poorna Bell, an award winning journalist and the author of Chasing the Rainbow and In Search of Silence, Salma El-Wardany, a writer, spoken word artist and public speaker and JJ Bola, a writer and poet, who has released three collections of poetry as well as a novel and a non-fiction book about masculinity and patriarchy for young people.

The theme of today's #ReadingWomen book club is girlhood. The reading list:

A Crime in the Neighbourhood by Suzanne Berne, 1999

A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing by Eimear McBride, 2014

The Power by Naomi Alderman, 2017

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.

The Women's Prize for Fiction podcast is produced by Bird Lime Media.
