Women writing about sex

The RSL is taking bookings from Members and Fellows only. For public tickets visit the British Library website 

Prize-winning novelist Michèle Roberts, author of the recent pamphlet ‘Silly Lady Novelists?’, chairs a discussion about whether, in a supposedly post-feminist world, female writers are free to write openly about sex and gender or whether new constraints now operate on the imagination. Patricia Duncker is a novelist and academic. In Seven Tales of Sex and Death she explores obsession, violence and the thin line between sex and death. Eimear McBride’s debut novel, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, won the inaugural Goldsmiths Prize and the 2014 Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction. Born in England and brought up in Jamaica, Leone Ross is a novelist, journalist and academic. Her first short-story collection, Come Let Us Sing Anyway, was published in June.

This event will be British Sign Language interpreted.

 This event will be preceeded by a free Book Group for RSL Members. Places are limited and must be booked in advance. Click here to book.
