To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Bloomsbury Institute is partnering with the charity Womankind for an event honouring women around the world.
Aminatta Forna, Orange Prize-shortlisted author, will discuss her novel The Memory of Love, set during the Civil War in Sierra Leone in 1969. She and a representative from the charity will discuss the current situation in Sierra Leone, ten years since the end of the conflict and Womankind’s work with local women’s organisations in Sierra Leone and around the world.
Womankind will also show a film about their work in Sierra Leone. All profits will go to Womankind.
