Who? New! International

Each season, BKBF presents several international debut authors whom we want to shine the light on for our audience. This year we present Swedish author and psychologist Lydia Sandgren (Collected Works, translated by Agnes Broomé), UK based editor and playwright Ayesha Manazir Siddiqi (The Centre) from Pakistan, Nigerian author and queer liberation activist Ani Kayode Somtochukwu (And Then He Sang A Lullaby), and London based commissioning editor Kathryn Bromwich (At the Edge of the Woods). Special guest, Andre Dubus III (Such Kindness) will introduce the authors and talk about his own experience when he was a debut author.
