UEA Live: #Merky Books
Curated by British Musician Stormzy, #Merky Books is a Penguin Random House imprint dedicated to publishing the best new fiction, non-fiction and poetry and the home of a new generation of voices. The event brings together Jade LB, author of cultural phenomenon 'Keisha The Sket' – the story of “a viral modern classic of Black British culture”, 16 years after it was first serialised online, #Merky’s Senior Commissioning Editor, Lemara Lindsay-Prince, whose vision for #Merky is to uplift and invest in under-represented voices and new narratives, and winner of the 2021 #Merky Books New Writers’ Prize and UEA alum, Jyoti Patel. The event will be chaired by UEA Live Co-director and lecturer in Creative Writing at UEA, KR Moorhead.
All events will be live in-person in the UEA Lecture Theatre block from 7pm – 8pm (unless government guidelines advise otherwise and then events will be moved online). There will be author Q&As and the opportunity to buy signed copies of the authors’ books.
