The Bernie Grant Arts Centre’s Tottenham Literature Festival returns from Monday 29th November until Sunday 5th December. Our joyous festival of words is bolder and bigger than ever – and this year welcomes the Booker Prize-winning Bernardine Evaristo, the first Black woman ever to win literature’s most prestigious prize. 

This year’s festival, which has both in-person and online events, focuses on the theme of Black ‘revolutionary love’ – love of self, love of community, and romantic love – and the power of that love to heal, inspire and transform. Because in a hostile world, the act of loving one another and ourselves can be radical and transformative.

Featuring Bernardine Evaristo, Yomi Sode, Malika Booker, Kareem Parkins-Brown, Janett Plummer, A Quick Ting On authors, Julianknxx, Lola Olufemi, Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, Sheba Montserrat, Jessica Horn, Laurence Sessou, Alexandrina Hemsley, Veronica Mckenzie, Miss Jacqui, Theresa Lola, Nick Makoha and others. 

Smokey Okey will be bringing delicious food to the Bernies Cafe/Bar bursting with flavours and tastes from Africa & the Caribbean, combining low-and-slow cooking techniques from America, to create what we call African Soul Food. With meat, vegetarian & vegan options available, there will be something sumptuous for everyone throughout the festival.
