The Open University is proud to sponsor Candice Carty-Williams: Queen of Contemporary Fiction chaired by Paula Akpan at the Edinburgh International Book Festival 2022.

Candice Carty-Williams’s joyous and vital debut Queenie had readers falling in love with its fabulous and flawed protagonist, and her latest work promises nothing less.

Award-winning writer and creator of the Guardian and 4th Estate BAME Short Story Prize, Carty-Williams introduces her new funny and heart-warming novel People Person: a window on the steadily-unraveling world of aspiring lifestyle influencer Dimple Pennington.

Expect to fall in love all over again in this event chaired by Paula Akpan.
