MSt tutor Roopa Farooki will be appearing at the Margate Bookie Literary Festival
From the announcement:
“29 September, 1-2pm, Turner Contemporary Art Gallery: MY FAMILY AND OTHER SECRETS
Meet three writers whose books are about difficult dads, manipulative mums and the trials (and joys!) of being a second-generation immigrant.
Roopa Farooki discusses The Good Children, about a monstrous mother’s browbeating her offspring into ‘ideal kids’.
Jess Kidd talks about the inspiration behind The Hoarder, set in a house collapsing under the weight of its terrible memories.
And Alice Fitzgerald tells us about Her Mother’s Daughter, a dark tale about how family deceit proves too much for one mother and her 10-year-old daughter.
Join us for readings, author questions and lots of talking.”
