In Conversation: Olumide Popoola & Sarah Ladipo Manyika

Loving Black Lives.

Goethe Pop Up Seattle welcomes Olumide Popoola for a conversation with San Francisco-based writer Sarah Ladipo Manyika. Our book club pick for the month of July is Olumide Popoola’s "WHEN WE SPEAK OF NOTHING"--a novel on being young, Black, and Queer.

How do writers take an idea and turn it into a story that readers can "fall into"? Do characters have their own voice or does an author make them speak as they do? And how does writing a novel shape the author? Both novelists will read from their works and share what inspires their writing - past, present, and future. Find more info about both authors on our website.
