Part of the 2019 Brontë Festival of Women's Writing

In 2017, as part of a BBC Radio 4 documentary, author Kit de Waal asked where all the working-class writers were, and found that while their voices might be absent from the pages of books and newspapers, they were still out there, insistent, diverse and compelling. In 2019, after a crowdfunding campaign with the publisher Unbound, Kit edited Common People, an anthology featuring thirty-two essays, poems and pieces of personal memoir from well-known and as-yet-published writers from working-class backgrounds from all over the UK.
Join Kit and contributors Katy Massey, Julie Noble and Cathy Rentzenbrink for an evening dedicated to Common People, and the importance of hearing from these vital and illuminating voices.
