Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City, The Shining Girls and this year’s Bridge, will be joining Suw on Monday 23 October at 19:00 to talk about how she uses her journalism skills, including deep listening, to research her novels, the ethics of research, and how to reach out to and set up interviews. She’ll also be talking about how her diagnosis of ADHD changed her life, and the impact that moving to the UK had on her writing, her experience of seeing The Shining Girls adapted for TV, writers block, plus a lot more!
