#ReadingWomen: War

Tuesday, 27 October

Zing Tsjeng is joined by Paula Akpan, a journalist and the co-founder of Black Girl Fest - a celebration of black women, girls and non-binary people, Hannah Witton, a YouTuber, broadcaster and author creating content focused on sexual health, liberation and welfare and Kiran Millwood Hargrave, a poet, playwright and award-winning and best-selling author of children’s and young adult fiction. 

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

Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels, 1997

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Nzgozi Adichie, 2007

The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht, 2011

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.
