Lọlá Ákínmádé Åkerström | In Every Mirror She’s Black
November 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
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.
