An Evening with Candice Carty-Williams

An Evening with Candice Carty-Williams

Join journalist, screenwriter, and author of the Sunday Times bestseller Queenie, Candice Carty-Williams, in her hometown of South London for this exclusive event to mark the much-anticipated publication of her new book, People Person.

In conversation live on stage, Candice will share her story of heart, humour, homecoming, and the truest meaning of family you can get when your dad loves his Jeep more than his children. She’ll discuss that mysterious and unknowable bond between siblings which means you really would do anything for them, and explore fatherhood, what it means to grow up without that figure in your life, and how it affects our identity and relationships.

Not afraid to ask the difficult questions, Candice will consider: What does it do to a person, not to have that figure in their lives when they’re growing, learning, pulling into focus what the world is? What impact does it have on the relationships we try to build as we get older? How is our confidence affected when someone who should be in your life, simply… isn’t? Because they just… don’t want to be? And what does it mean for the mothers who have to play both roles?

Funny and thought-provoking, and with the chance to ask the author your own questions in person, this promises to be an unmissable evening in celebration of Candice and her extraordinary writing.

Candice will be joined on stage by journalist Paula Akpan. This event is produced by Fane in partnership with Bad Form. Every attendee will receive an exclusive FREE event bookmark.

Copies of People Person will be available to purchase on the night for £10 (RRP £12.99) and Candice will be signing books after the show. Feel free to bring your own copy of People Person or Queenie to get it signed.
