Liv Little & Nicola Dinan in conversation: Rosewater





6.30pm, Thursday 30th May



Come along to an evening with Liv Little, to mark the paperback publication of her spectacular, celebrated debut novel Rosewater. 


Elsie is a sexy, funny, and fiercely independent woman living in South London. But, at just 28, she is also tired. Though she spends her days writing tender poetry in her journal, her nights are spent working long hours for minimum wage at a neighbourhood gay bar.


The difficulty of being estranged from her family, struggle of being continually rejected from jobs, and fear of never making money doing what she loves, is too great. But Elsie is determined to keep the faith, for a little longer at least. Things will surely turn around. They have to.


As she tries to breathe through the panic attacks, sleeping with her hot and spirited co-worker Bea isn’t exactly straightforward and offers Elsie just another place to hide. 


While Elsie tries to reconnect with her best friend Juliet, her fragile world spirals out of control. Can Elsie steady herself and not fall through the cracks?


Liv Little is a writer, broadcaster and the founder of gal-dem. Her work spans journalism, audio, TV and curatorial projects for which she’s received various accolades, including LGBTQI+ Broadcaster of The Year and Rising Star at Wow. 


Liv will be joined in conversation by the novelist Nicola Dinan. Bellies, Nicola’s debut, was longlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize and shortlisted for the Mo Siewcharran Prize. Her second novel, Disappoint Me, will be released in 2025.


Tickets are £6.00 and include a glass of wine or a soft drink.
