Lọlá Ákínmádé Åkerström | In Every Mirror She’s Black
November 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Though online tickets for this are no longer available, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to attend.
Three Black women are linked in unexpected ways to the same influential white man in Stockholm as they build their new lives in the most open society – run by the most private people.
Told through the eyes of the three women, In Every Mirror She’s Black is a fast-paced, richly nuanced yet accessible contemporary novel that touches on important social issues of racism and tokenism, and what it means to be a Black woman navigating a white-dominated society.
Join us to read from this brilliant debut novel by Nigerian-born Lọlá Ákínmádé Åkerström. Åkerström moved to the US at the age of 15, then came to the UK to study at Oxford. She now lives in Sweden.
